Biddle University Catalog 



Location and Historical Sketch 

Biddle University was founded in 1867, and is located at 
Charlotte, N. C. The Institution is named in memory of the 
late Maj. Henry J. Biddle, of Philadelphia, whose widow, Mrs. 
M. D. Biddle, was one of its most liberal supporters. It is 
chartered by the legislature of the State, and is under the 
auspices of the Presbyterian Church in the United States of 
America. 

It stands at the radiating point of seven railroads, in the 
midst of a dense and comparatively-intelligent colored popula- 
tion, and occupies a site of seventy acres, within the city limits. 

It is situated in the heart of the South Atlantic region, 
which contains the two synods of Atlantic and Catawba, hav- 
ing 319 colored churches, 213 ministers, scores of young men 
in preparation for the ministry, with a large number of schools 
and academies under their care. These schools and churches 
must be furnished with intelligent Christian teachers and 
preachers, who must be largely educated on the field, and in 
contact with the people among whom they are to labor. Such 
training is given here at less expense than it could be else- 
where; the student has the best opportunity for a Christian 
education, together with the refining influences of a Christian 
home ; and he is kept at the same time in contact and sympathy 
with the people.

Requirements for Admission 

This school is open to young men of all denominations. 
Candidates for admission must produce evidence that they 
are members in good and regular standing in some evangelical 
church, that they possess competent talent, and that they have 
been regularly graduated at some College or University, or in 
some way they have received an equivalent for the training of 
a College course. Applicants for admission to an advanced 
standing must present a dismission from some other Theologi- 
cal Seminary, or be prepared for examination on the subjects 
which have been pursued by the class which they desire to 
enter. 

When a student who has been a member of any other 
theological school seeks admission into this, he must produce 
certificate of good standing and orderly dismission ere he can 
be received. 

In exceptional cases, promising young men who have not 
had the benefit of a full College course will be received, and 
will be allowed to pursue an elective course.

Description of Course 

HEBREW 
Dr. McCrorey 

2. Junior Class. Hebrew begun. Recitation five times 
a week throughout the year. Text-books : Harper's Elements 
of Hebrew. Harper's Introductory Hebrew Method and 
Manual. Special emphasis is laid on the acquisition of a 
vocabulary. The inflection of the language and several hun- 
dred of the commonest words are memorized. There is a 
daily drill in reciprocal oral translation and in writing Hebrew. 

3. Middle Class. Reading from the Historical and 
Prophetical Books twice a week throughout the year. Text- 
books : Hebrew Bible. Harper's Hebrew Syntax. Driver's 
Hebrew Tenses. Special attention will be given to the Syntax, 
to enlarge the vocabulary, and rapid reading. 

4. Senior Class. (Elective.) Reading at sight from the 
Historical Books, Exegesis of Hebrew Prophecy, and Poetry, 
twice a week throughout the year. 

GREEK 
Dr. Russell 

1. A course upon New Testament Introduction, Criticism, 
and Theology, once a week throughout the year. 

(a) Junior Class will read the remaining three gospels 
with reference to the Harmony, and also to the distinctive 
character of each of the four gospels, three times a week 
throughout the year. 

(b) Middle Class will read Ephesians with Exegesis twice 
a week throughout the year. The other epistles of the 
captivity — Phillippians, Colossians, and Philemon — will be 



14 Biddle University Catalog 

assigned for private reading. A summary of their contents 
will be considered in the class-room, and they will be required 
in the examination. 

(c) Senior Class will read Romans with Exegesis twice 
a week throughout the year. The other Epistles of the Third 
Missionary Journey — I. Corinthians, II. Corinthians, and 
Galatians — will be assigned for private reading. Their scope 
and contents will be discussed in the school-room, and they 
will be required in the examination. 

SYSTEMATIC THEOLOGY 
Dr. Partee 

In this department, the purpose is to have each student 
read, during his course, some standard work on Systematic 
Theology, and in addition to this read some authority on 
Theism. 

This course of reading will be made the subject of the 
most thorough examination and free discussion, and will be 
supplemented by every available means which is likely to 
encourage and stimulate the student in his search for truth, 
and in preparation for its defense. 

Systematic Theology is begun in the second term of the 
Junior year, and completed in the Senior year. The doctrines 
of Theology are presented didactically, historically, and prob- 
lematically. The order of topics pursued is: The nature, 
forms, and sources of theology ; the being of God, His nature 
and attributes: Trinity; the Divinity of Christ; the holy 
nature, necessity, perfection, and extent of atonement; His 
kingdom; His humiliation and exaltation; vocation; regenera- 
tion ; faith ; justification; sanctification ; the law of God; escha- 
tology ; the sacraments. 

HOMTLETICS 

Dr. Jones 

The work of this department is carried on throughout the 
Seminary course. In the Junior and Middle years, a text-book 



* 




Biddle University Catalog 15 

on the "Preparation and Delivery of Sermons" is read. This 
is supplemented by exercises in the analysis of sermons, and 
preaching before the professors and students of the Univer- 
sity weekly. 

In the Middle and Senior Classes much attention is given 
to the preparation and criticism of Sermon plans and extem- 
pore preaching. 

CHRISTIAN EVIDENCES 

Dr. Partee 

By means of text-books and discussions, the student is aided 
in verifying the Biblical proofs of doctrine and Christian truth 
as represented in the symbols of the Church, and he is thus 
trained to express with facility and clearness the revealed will 
of God. 

PASTORAL THEOLOGY 

Dr. Partee 

The treatment of this subject is confined to the third year 
of the course. It is designed that each student shall become 
thoroughly acquainted with the best method of applying the 
message of salvation to the hearts and lives of men. Lectures 
are given, accompanied by the use of text-books. 

The course includes the importance of ministerial piety, 
proper habits of study, skill and ability in the various branches 
of church work, the pastor's duty and relation to the various 
courts of the church, and the various private and public duties 
pertaining to his office. 

CHURCH GOVERNMENT 
Dr. Partee 

Four lectures on the general subject are given to the Junior 
Class. 

In the Middle Year, the Form of Government with proof 
texts is taken up and pursued through one term, and a minute 
comparison with other forms of church polity is made. 



16 Biddle University Catalog 

In the Middle and Senior Years, the Book of Discipline is 
used as text-book, accompanied by lectures. 

BIBLICAL HISTORY 

Dr. Partee 

Since sacred history is of vital importance as a part of a 
thorough Theological Education, the subject is pursued 
through the entire three-years' course. 

Biblical History is studied by the Junior Class, with the 
English version of the Old Testament as a text-book, and 
Smith's Old Testament History as a guide, and is taught by 
lectures and constant reference to the typical and preparatory 
nature of the Old Testament. The connection between sacred 
and profane history is pointed out, and attention given to 
Archeology, Geography, and Chronology. 

ECCLESIASTICAL HISTORY 

Dr. Jones 

This subject is taken up by the Middle Class, and taught 
by lectures, with text-books, covering the period from Apos- 
tolic times to the Reformation — sixteenth century. 

The Senior Class continues the subject from the Reforma- 
tion to the present time, devoting the second term to the His- 
tory of the Presbyterian Church of the United States. 

During each year a carefully prepared thesis, having for 
its subject some leading personage, epoch, or phase, etc., from 
sacred history, is required from each student. 

ENGLISH BIBLE 
Dr. Partee 

One may know a great deal about the Bible, and yet be 
unfamiliar with the Book itself. 

The design of this course is to secure to the students inti- 
mate first-hand knowledge of the Scriptures. 

To this end the Bible itself is the text-book. 



Biddle University Catalog 17 

CHRISTIAN SOCIOLOGY 
Dr. McCrorey 

One hour per week throughout the Senior year is devoted 
to the study of Church and Social questions, 

Instruction is given partly by use of text-books and partly 
by lectures; the aim being to treat the subject in a practical 
manner. 

FORWARD MISSION STUDY 
Dr. Partee 

This study is pursued once a week throughout the course ; 
and its purpose is that the student may gain a knowledge of 
the countries where missions are to be established and main- 
tained, and of the people of those countries, their forms of 
government, racial peculiarities, religious beliefs, and degree 
of intelligence; also their environments, difficulties, discour- 
agements, and needs. 

Such knowledge broadens the vision, increases giving, and 
leads to a higher life of service. 

GRADE REQUIREMENTS FOR PROMOTION AND 
GRADUATION 

A grade of sixty-five per cent, is required in a single study 
for each term, and a general yearly average of seventy-five 
per cent, is required for promotion and for graduation. Each 
student attaining an average of ninety per cent, for the entire 
full course is granted the Degree of S. T. B. 

FURTHER INFORMATION 

Period of Study — The regular course of study, as in other 
Seminaries of the Presbyterian Church, covers a period of 
three years. 

Practical Work — The practical work of the ministry is 
joined with work of preparation, as the theological students 
have opportunities of laboring as supplies in the neighboring 
churches, during vacation and in term time. 



1 8 Biddle University Catalog 

With the facilities at hand, special and successful efforts 
are made to aid students in obtaining vacation employment 
along the lines of their future work as teachers and preachers 
among the people. 

Rules and Regulations — Except in a few particulars, the 
students of the School of Theology are not subject to rules 
and regulations which govern those of the other schools of 
the University. 

Rooms — The rooms in McNamee Hall are reserved for 
candidates for the ministry. Each of these rooms is furnished 
with a bedstead, mattress, pillows, bureau, washstand, chairs, 
looking glass, etc., and is heated by steam. 

Expenses — There is no charge for tuition or room rent. 

There is a charge of eight dollars per month for board, in 
connection with the boarding department, where all the stu- 
dents living on the grounds are required to board; the theo- 
logical students, however, are provided with separate dining- 
room. The fee of eight dollars per month covers also expenses 
of fuel, light, and washing of towels and bed-clothing. 

Examinations — The semi-annual examinations will be con- 
ducted during the last week in January and the last week in 
May. The examination will be oral and written. Each stu- 
dent is required to take these examinations, and if by sickness 
or absence one fails to take them he must submit to an exami- 
nation with a corresponding class in a subsequent year.

Requirements for Admission 

Freshman Class — Fifteen units of secondary work are 
required for entrance, without condition, into the Freshman 
Class. 

Students presenting thirteen units will be entered con- 
ditionally, with the understanding that the two units lacking 
will be made up by the end of the Sophomore year. 

A unit in any subject represents a year's study, constitut- 
ing approximately a quarter of a full year's work in a second- 
ary school. 

This statement is designed to afford a standard of meas- 
urement for the work done in secondary schools. It takes the 
four-year high school course as a basis, and assumes that the 
length of the school year is from thirty-six to forty weeks, 
that a period is from forty to sixty minutes in length, and that 
the study is pursued for four or five periods a week ; but, under 
ordinary circumstances, a satisfactory year's work in any 
subject cannot be accomplished in less than one hundred and 
twenty sixty-minute periods, or their equivalent. Schools 
organized on any other than a four-year basis can, neverthe- 
less, estimate their work in terms of this unit. 

Of the fifteen units necessary for entrance, eleven are 
required, as follows: 

English 3 Plane Geometry I 

Latin 2y 2 History I 

Greek \y 2 Physics Vi 

Elementary Algebra i J / 2 

The other four units may be selected from the following 
group, with the values attached.

Graduates of the Normal and Preparatory School of Biddle 
University and affiiliated schools are admitted to the Fresh- 
man Class on certificate. 

Other students making application for admission to the 
Freshman Class will be required to conform strictly to the 
entrance requirements, and will be admitted to the class by 
sustaining their examinations in the subjects mentioned in the 
requirements. 

Advanced Standing — All candidates seeking admission to 
advanced standing should be prepared for thorough tests in 
the subjects taught in the class next below the one they may 
desire to enter. 

Special Students — Mature persons of good character, who 
desire to pursue some special subjects, and who have had 
requisite preliminary training, are allowed to enter the various 
courses of study in Biddle University without becoming can- 
didates for degrees. 

Special students are subject to the same regulations regard- 
ing attendance and examinations as candidates for degrees. 

Description of Requirements for Admission 

ENGLISH (3 units) 

The preparation in English has two main objects: (a) command 
of correct English, spoken and written, (b) ability to read with 
accuracy, intelligence, and appreciation. 

The first object requires instruction in grammar and composition. 
English grammar should ordinarily be reviewed in the secondary 
school ; and correct spelling and grammatical accuracy should be 
rigorously exacted in connection with all written work during the four 
years. The principles governing punctuation, diction, paragraphs, and 
the whole composition should be carefully studied ; and practice in 
composition, oral as well as written, should extend throughout the 
secondary school period. Written exercises may well comprise narra- 
tion, description, and easy exposition and argument based upon simple 
outlines. It is advisable that subjects for this work be taken from the 
student's personal experience, general knowledge, and studies other 
than English, as well as from his reading in literature. Finally, special 
instruction in language and composition should be accompanied by con- 
certed effort of teachers in all branches to cultivate in the student the 



Biddle University Catalog 23 

habit of using good English in his recitations and various exercises, 
whether oral or written. 

In pursuit of the second object, the student is required to read 
certain books chosen from two lists, headed respectively Reading and 
Study. 

In connection with both lists the student should develop the habit 
of reading aloud, and should be encouraged to commit to memory 
some of the more notable passages in verse and also prose. 

In order that he may better appreciate the merits of literature, he 
is further advised to make a study of the most important facts in the 
lives of the authors whose works he reads, and to determine their 
place in literary history. 

Reading 

The aim of this part of the requirement is to foster in the student 
the habit of intelligent reading, and to develop a taste for good lit- 
erature. He should read the books carefully, but his attention should 
not be so fixed upon details that he fails to appreciate the main purpose 
and the charm of what he reads. 

With a view to large freedom of choice, the books provided for 
reading are arranged in the following groups, from each of which at 
least two selections are to be made, except as otherwise provided under 
Group I. 

Group I. Classics in Translation. The Old Testament, comprising at 
least the chief narrative episodes in Genesis, Exodus, Joshua, Judges, 
Samuel, Kings, and Daniel, together with the books of Ruth and 
Esther. 

For any selection from this group, a selection from any other 
group may be substituted. 

Group II. Drama. Shakespeare : A Midsummer Night's Dream, The 
Merchant of Venice, As You Like It, Twelfth Night, The Tempest, 
Romeo and Juliet, King John, Richard the Second, Richard the Third, 
Henry the Fifth, Coriolanus, Julius Caesar* Macbeth* Hamlet* 

Group III. Prose Fiction. Malory: Morte d' Arthur (about 100 
pages); Bunyan: Pilgrim's Progress, Part I; Swift: Gulliver's 
Travels (voyages to Lilliput and Brobdingnag) ; Defoe : Robinson 
Crusoe, Part I ; Goldsmith : The Vicar of Wakefield; Frances 
Burney: Evelina; Scott's Novels, any one; Jane Austen's Novels,

continuation of the student's earlier reading. Special emphasis is laid 
upon form and style, the exact meaning of words and phrases, and the 
understanding of allusion. For this close reading, the books are 
arranged in four groups, from each of which one selection is to be 
made. 

Group I, Drama — Shakespeare: Julius Caesar, Macbeth, and 
Hamlet. 

Group II, Poetry — Milton: LAllegro, II Penseroso, and either 
Comus or Lycidas; Tennyson: The Coming of Arthur, The Holy Grail, 
and The Passing of Arthur. Wordsworth, Keats, and Shelley, in Book 
IV of Palgrave's Golden Treasury (First Series).

The foregoing definition of entrance requirements in English is the 
same as that of the College Entrance Examination Board. 

LATIN (2J4 units) 

Elementary Latin. To gain credit of 2 l / 2 units on this part of the 
requirements, the pupil should do work in amount not less than Caesar's 
Gallic War, Books I-IV; Cicero, the Oration against Catiline, for the 
Manilian Law, and for Archias ; Nepos (Lives), and Sallust. 

GREEK (Elementary Greek, V/ 2 units) 

The requirement in Elementary Greek includes: (1) Xenophon's 
Anabasis, Books I-IV, wkh attention not only to language, but to sub- 



26 Biddle University Catalog 

ject-matter as well; (2) grammar, including a familiar knowledge of 
inflection, word-formation, and ordinary syntax. This will be tested by: 
(a) questions on a passage from the Anabasis; (b) translation into 
Greek, with accents, of simple English sentences. 

This requirement is the same as that of the College Entrance 
Examination Board in Greek a (i and ii), b, and g. 

I. ELEMENTARY ALGEBRA (one and one-half units) 

The requirement in Algebra covers the work through equations of 
the second degree, including the following subjects: the four funda- 
mental operations for rational algebraic expressions ; factoring, deter- 
mination of highest common factor and lowest common multiple by 
factoring; fractions, including complex fractions, and ratio and pro- 
portion; linear equations, both numerical and literal, containing one or 
more unknown quantities ; problems depending on linear equations ; 
radicals, including the extraction of the square root of polynomials 
and of numbers ; exponents, including the fractional and negative ; 
quadratic equations, both numerical and literal; simple cases of equa- 
tions with one or more unknown qualities, that can be solved by the 
methods of linear or quadratic equations ; the binomial theorem for 
positive integral exponents; the formulae for the nth term, and the sum 
of the terms of arithmetical and geometric progressions, with applica- 
tions. 

It is assumed that pupils will be required throughout the course to 
solve numerous problems which involve putting questions into equa- 
tions. Some of these problems should be chosen from mensuration, from 
physics, and from commercial life. The use of graphical methods and 
illustrations, particularly in connection with the solution of equations, 
is also expected. 

This requirement is the same as that of the College Entrance 
Examination Board in Mathematics a (i and ii). 

PLANE GEOMETRY (one unit) 
The requirement in Plane Geometry includes the usual theorems 
and constructions of good text-books, including the general properties 
of plane rectilinear figures ; the circle and the measurement of angles ; 
similar polygons; areas; regular polygons and the measurement of the 
circle; the solution of numerous original exercises, including loci prob- 
lems ; applications to the mensuration of lines and plane surfaces. 

Teachers of Geometry should lay stress on accuracy of statement 
and elegance of form as well as on clear and strict reasoning. Mere 
memorizing should be avoided. Special care should be taken that in 
the proof of a proposition no lines be drawn unless their construction 
is proved to be possible. 



Biddle University Catalog 27 

This requirement is the same as that of the College Entrance 
Examination Board in Mathematics c. 

HISTORY, Ancient History (one unit) 

Special attention to Greek and Roman history, but including also 
a short introductory study of the more ancient nations and the chief 
events of the early Middle Ages, down to the death of Charlemagne 
(814). 
MEDIEVAL AND MODERN EUROPEAN HISTORY (one unit) 

From the death of Charlemagne to the present time. 
ENGLISH HISTORY (one unit) 
AMERICAN HISTORY AND CIVIL GOVERNMENT (one unit) 

The examinations in history will be so framed as to require com- 
parison and judgment on the pupil's part rather than mere memory. 
The examinations will presuppose the use of good text-books, at least 
six hundred duodecimo pages of collateral reading, and practice in 
written work. Historical novels, plays, or poems will not be accepted 
in fulfillment of the requirement of collateral reading. The methods of 
instruction which the examinations in History and Civil Government 
presuppose are substantially identical with those set forth in A History 
Syllabus for Secondary Schools (D. C. Heath & Co.) ; and the refer- 
ences for collateral reading given in that manual may be taken as 
indications of the kind of collateral reading that should be done. 

These requirements are the same as those of the College Entrance 
Examination Board in History, a, b, c, d. 

PHYSICS (one-half unit) 

Preparation in Physics should include: (1) The study of one 
standard text-book, for the purpose of obtaining a connected and com- 
prehensive view of the subject. The student should be given oppor- 
tunity and encouragement to consult other scientific literature. 
(2) Instruction by lecture table demonstrations, to be used mainly for 
illustration of the facts and phenomena of physics in their qualitative 
aspects and in their practical applications. (3) Individual laboratory 
work, consisting of experiments requiring at least the time of thirty 
double periods. The experiments performed by each student should 
number at least thirty. The work should be so distributed as to give a 
wide range of observation and practice. The aim of laboratory work 
should be to supplement the pupil's fund of concrete knowledge and to 
cultivate his power of accurate observation and clearness of thought 
and expression. The exercises should be chosen with a view to furnish- 



28 Biddle University Catalog 

ing forceful illustrations of fundamental principles and their practical 
applications. They should be such as yield results capable of ready 
interpretation, obviously in conformity with theory, and free from the 
disguise of unintelligible units. Slovenly work should not be tolerated, 
and the effort for precision should not lead to the use of apparatus or 
processes so complicated as to obscure the principle involved. 

SOLID GEOMETRY (one-half unit) 
The requirement in Solid Geometry covers the usual theorems and 
constructions of good text-books, including the relations of planes and 
lines in space; the properties and measurements of prisms, pyramids, 
cylinders, and cones ; the sphere and the spherical triangle ; the solu- 
tion of numerous original exercises, including loci problems ; applica- 
tions to the mensuration of surfaces and solids. 

This requirement is the same as that of the College Entrance 
Examination Board in Mathematics d. 

ADVANCED ALGEBRA (one-half unit) 
This part of the requirements will involve permutations and com- 
binations as applied to simple cases. Complex numbers, also, will be 
employed, with graphical representation of sums and differences. 

Determinants, chiefly of the second, third, and fourth orders, 
including the use of minors and the solution of linear equations. 

TRIGONOMETRY (one-half unit) 

Definitions and relations of the six trigonometric functions as 
ratios, circular measurement of angles. 

Proofs of principal formulas, in particular for the sine, cosine, and 
tangent of the sum and difference of two angles, of the double angle 
and the half angle, the product expressions for the sum or difference of 
two sines or of two cosines, etc. ; the transformation of trigonometric 
expressions by means of these formulas. 

Solution of trigonometric equations of a simple character. 

Theory and use of logarithms (without the introduction of work 
involving infinite series). 

The solution of right and oblique triangles, and practical applica- 
t on, including the solution of right spherical triangles. 

BOTANY (one-half unit) 

Since the year's course is to be counted as one unit, it should 
include, at least, the general principals of (i) anatomy and morphology, 
(2) physiology, and (3) ecology, along with the classification and 
natural history of plant groups 



Biddle University Catalog 29 

CHEMISTRY (one-half unit) 

Preparation of the student for examination in this subject should 
include: (1) the study of, at least, one standard text-book, in order 
that the candidate may get a comprehensive and connected under- 
standing of the most important facts and laws of elementary Chemistry ; 

(2) individual laboratory work, comprising, at least, forty exercises ; 

(3) introduction by lecture-table in order to test the pupil's knowl- 
edge of the principles involved in his laboratory investigations. 

PHYSIOGRAPHY (one-half unit) 

In order to receive credit for one-half unit in this subject, the 
student should read one of the leading secondary text-books in Phy- 
sical Geography. Where practicable, much time should be given to 
laboratory work. In the Autumn and Spring, field trips should take 
the place of laboratory exercises. 

GERMAN (one unit) 

During the year, the work should comprise: (1) careful drill upon 
pronounciation ; (2) the memorizing and frequent repetition of easy 
colloquial sentences; (3) drill upon the rudiments of grammar; that is, 
upon the inflection of the articles, of such nouns as belong to the 
language of everyday life, of adjectives, pronouns, weak verbs, and 
the more usual strong verbs, also upon the use of the more common 
prepositions, the simple uses of the modal auxiliaries, and the elementary 
rules of syntax and word-order. 

At the end of the elementary course, the pupil should be able to 
read at sight and to translate, if called upon, by way of testing ability, 
to read any passage of very easy dialog or narrative prose, help being 
given upon unusual words and construction, to put into German short 
English sentences taken from the language of everyday life or based 
upon the text given for translation, and to answer questions upon the 
rudiments of the grammar as above stated. 

FRENCH (one unit) 

Elementary Course. At the end of this course the candidate should 
be able to pronounce French to a fair degree of accuracy, to read at 
sight easy French prose, to put into French simple English sentences 
taken from everyday life or based upon a portion of the French text 
read. 

BIBLE (one unit) 
The candidate may receive credit for one unit in the Bible by 
pursuing the following course : 



30 Biddle University Catalog 

(a) Reading — The chief narrative episodes in Genesis, Exodus, 
Joshua, Judges, Samuel, Kings, and Daniel, together with the books of 
Ruth and Esther, in the Old Testament; and, in the New Testament, 
the Gospel by St. Luke and the Acts of the Apostles. 

(b) Study — Students should make a close study of characters, inci- 
dents, and teachings of the book of Genesis, paying special attention to 
chapters I and II, period of the human race, and chapters XII to XXX, 
period of the chosen family. 

In St. Mark's Gospel, study should be made of the witness of John 
the Baptist, Christ's Baptism, the Ordination of the Twelve, the Trans- 
figuration, the Parables, the Miracles, the Last Supper, the Crucifixion 
of Our Lord and His Resurrection. 

PHYSIOLOGY (one-half unit) 
The requirements in this subject will be a general knowledge of 
the activities of living organisms, with special reference to the human 
body, and a general knowledge of organs of the human body and their 
functions. It is expected that the applicant will be thoroughly familiar 
with such information on the subject as is contained in any good 
text-book of elementary physiology.

tion is given to dialect study, words, and analysis. There is 
also discussion as to the conflict culminating in the Greco- 
Persian wars. 

Epic Poetry. Homer's Iliad and Odyssey — six books. In 
connection with these poems, special stress is put on the fol- 
lowing: Pecularities of dialect, scansion, mythology, word 
study, and the manner of life and ethics in the Homeric age. 

Greek Oratory. Demosthenes' On the Crown. Gram- 
matical constructions and technical terms are studied, together 
with the history, laws, and politics of Athens.

Biddle University Catalog 37 

The Captivi and the Satires will be studfed in such a way 
as to draw from them the vivid pictures of the age they portray. 

DEPARTMENT OF PHILOSOPHY 
Dr. Anderson 

Psychology : The aim of this course is to acquaint the 
student with the facts of consciousness, and to instruct him in 
the methods of study of mental phenomena. A thorough 
study is given to the self, its constitution and analysis ; to atten- 
tion, memory, inagination, association, habit, and the will. 

Logic : The course embraces a study of the use of terms, 
the laws of the syllogism, and the methods of deductive and 
inductive reasoning. 

Ethics: In the study of Ethics, thorough and comprehen- 
sive discussion is given to conscience, its origin and function; 
to moral law, its meaning, design, and authority; and to the 
fundamental moral ideas of good, duty, and virtue, and the 
order of their development. 

Economics: The purpose is to acquaint the student with 
the history of economic development, especially the eco- 
nomic history of the United States. Attention is given to 
a study of value, price, monopolies, wages, industrial organi- 
zations, and labor problems, especially the labor problem as it 
relates to the Negro. The work is done by the use of text- 
book, supplemented by lectures. Written theses on assigned 
topics are required, in addition to the work done in the class- 
room. 

DEPARTMENT OF SOCIOLOGY 
Dr. Davis 

This subject is treated broadly, but with a careful survey of 
the elementary laws of human society. Emphasis is placed 
upon the practical phases of the subject, such as the study of 
family organization, charities, pauperism, criminology, and so- 
called solutions of social and economic difficulties. 

The subject will be treated topically, and collateral reading 
will be insisted upon. 



38 Biddle University Catalog 

DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL SCIENCE 
Dr. Davis 

Zoology. The course in this subject is intended to familiar- 
ize the student with the structure, physiology, and life-history 
of vertebrates and invertebrates, beginning with single-celled 
organisms, and proceeding to the complex forms. 

Botany. The study seeks to impart a thorough knowledge 
of the physiology, morphology, and ecology of plant life. 

Much field work is done, and each student is required to 
prepare an herbarium of fifty specimens, and to present the 
same as a condition of passing in this subject. 

Geology. This subject is present in two principal phases: 
(i) Dynamic and Structural Geology. The geological forces 
and the work they accomplish, and a study of original and 
secondary rock structures. (2) Physiographic and Historical 
Geology, with special reference to the American continent 
and the study of the evolution of land, and of life forms from 
the oldest to the most recent. 

Astronomy. This is mainly a course in Descriptive Astron- 
omy. It aims to impart a thorough knowledge of the more 
important facts and principles of Astronomy, and some 
acquaintance with the methods of developing the truths of 
the science. 

Recitations are supplemented by nightly studies of the 
heavens and a location of the principal stars and constellations. 

Chemistry. This course covers the scope of Elementary 
Chemistry. The recitations are accompanied by lectures, and 
the principles illustrated by experiments, which the student is 
required to perform, keeping notes of their work. A labora- 
tory fee of one dollar must be paid for material. 

Physics. The course covers the fundamental principles of 
Physics, including mechanics, properties of matter, heat, and 
electricity, sound and light.

Requirements for Admission 

All applicants for admission to the Normal and Prepara- 
tory School must be at least fourteen years of age, and must 
furnish satisfactory testimonials of good moral character. 

First Year — Applicants may be admitted to the First 
Year by examination in English Grammar and Composition, 
Arithmetic, Geography, and American History. The amount 
of work required in each of these subjects is equivalent to 
what is usually done in Grammar Schools. The aim of these 
examinations is to determine the candidate's fitness to enter 
the First Year. 

Advanced Standing — Admission to classes higher than the 
First Year may be gained by the applicant's showing ability to 
do the work of the class just below the one he desires to enter. 

In the event, however, the candidate admitted to a class 
fails to show ability to do creditably the work of said class, he 
may be withdrawn from that class, and placed where he belongs 
in the estimation of the faculty. 

Courses of Instruction 

The Normal and Preparatory School gives thorough and systematic 
instruction in the subjects required for admission to standard colleges. 
Students completing this course, and not desiring to further pursue 
their studies, have a good foundation for useful citizenship. 

Two courses are offered — one leading to the Classical Course of the 
College, the other to the Scientific. The Scientific Course is identical 
with the Classical in the First and in the Second Year. In the Third 
and the Fourth Year of the Scientific Course, German is substituted 
for Greek or Latin. 

The Numerals indicate the number of weekly sixty-minute Recita- 
tion Periods.

Description of Courses 

GREEK 
Dr. Shute 

Elementary Greek. To be accomplished in the Greek 
language, the student must have (i)a working vocabulary of 
the language, (2) a knowledge of its grammatical principles, 
and (3) the ability to use this vocabulary and to apply these 
principles. To secure these ends, the first year's work is 
devoted to learning thoroughly the forms of the Greek lan- 
guage and the important principles of syntax. Special atten- 
tion is given to oral and written exercises, to accentuation, to 
rapid but accurate translation of Greek sentences in English, 
and to the stems of inflected words. 

PHYSIOGRAPHY 

Under this head, the student is made familiar with the 
physical features of the earth's surface, and the elements and 
forces controlling the destiny of plant and animal life. 

Erosion, weathering, the movements of the atmosphere 
and of the ocean, and the relation of all the natural forces to 
human destiny will be particularly emphasized. 

MUSIC 
Dr. Long 

The course in vocal music is designed to give a practical 
knowledge of the fundamental principles of music as an 
element of liberal culture. 

The Modern Music series is the method used. 

For advanced work in sight-singing and expression, ample 
opportunity is given for practice in the University Choral Club. 



48 Biddle University Catalog 

This organization includes the Chapel Choir and the well- 
known "Biddle University Quintet," that has sung several con- 
secutive years at the General Assembly of the Presbyterian 
Church, U. S. A. 

Instruction in instrumental music (piano) may be had by 
special arrangement. 

For drill in ensemble playing, the University Symphony 
Orchestra and College Brass Band offer advantages for 
practice. 

GRADE REQUIREMENT FOR PROMOTION AND 
GRADUATION 

The grade requirement for promotion is the same as that 
of the School of Arts and Sciences — a general average of 
seventy-five per cent., with a minimum of sixty-five per cent, 
in any single study. 

Students completing either course will receive a certificate 
of graduation, which entitles them to admission into the 
Freshman Class.

School of Industries 



School of Industries 

Prof. L. L. Spaulding, A. M. 
Superintendent 



All students in the Preparatory Course are required to 
take some trade, and report twice a week for work in the 
Industrial School. College students may also take trades. 

At present, several trades are being taught — Carpentry, 
Printing, Bricklaying, Plastering, Tailoring, Shoemaking, 
Blacksmithing, etc. Each student is allowed to have his choice 
of trades being taught, but no change will be allowed after the 
choice is once made. 

CARPENTRY 
Prof. L. L. Spaulding, A. M., Foreman 

Carpentry and Joining are taught in a room which is being 
provided with twelve cabinet benches, each of which is fitted 
up with a set of carpenters' tools. 

Students are taught the use and care of these tools, the 
principles of woodworking — from drawings and models — and 
have also such practical instruction as can be had from 
improvements and repairs of the buildings and furniture of the 
University. 

Besides doing the necessary work for the school, a limited 
amount of work is done for outside parties. Three professors' 
houses have been built by the students, also a boiler-house, the 
new A. & M. building, and extensive repairs have been made 
on other buildings. 

PRINTING 
Prof. William E. Hill, Foreman 

This office is equipped as any regular printing establish- 
ment would be. Besides the ordinary office furniture, it has 
three printing presses. 



52 Biddle University Catalog 

In this office the Afro- American Presbyterian and the 
Argus are set up and printed, and job work is done, thus giv- 
ing the students actual printing-office instruction and practice, 
both in typesetting and presswork. The office is equipped for 
doing excellent work, and the instruction is thorough and 
practical. 

SHOEMAKING 
K. T. Blue, Foreman 
Students are taught the use and care of the tools, and such 
work as is done in regular shoe shops — sewing, pegging, nail- 
ing, cementing, patching, half -soling, fitting, lasting, and putting 
together of new work. By doing work for the students and 
professors, ample opportunity is given for making this branch 
of work thoroughly practical. 

MASONRY AND PLASTERING 

J. C. Norman, Foreman 

These two trades have been introduced, and instruction in 

them is being given daily with very satisfactory results. These 

branches are putting a goodly number in possession of skill 

that will command work and good pay. 

TAILORING 

W. G. Lino, Foreman 

The room for this branch of industry is provided with all 
necessary facilities for teaching and learning this important 
trade. Cleaning, pressing, hand and machine sewing, repair- 
ing, and making new work are done, and the various elemen- 
tary principles of the trade are taught. The advanced stu- 
dents are taught cutting and fitting. 

BLACKSMITHING 
W. L. Price, Foreman 

PAINTING

General Information 



General Information 



THE SCHOOL YEAR 
The school year consists of one session of thirty-six weeks, 
commencing on the third Wednesday in September, at nine 
o'clock a. m., and closing on the first Wednesday in June. 
Students wishing to enter should make early application. The 
best interests of the Institution and of the students require 
that they report themselves for duty promptly at the opening 
of each term. 

EXAMINATIONS 
There are two regular examinations, one near the close of 
each of the two terms. The final grading of the Senior Classes 
is now based upon, in part, and made up after, the second-term 
examinations. The examinations are oral and written. 

THE HOME DEPARTMENT 
W. H. Stinson, A.M., Superintendent 

This department includes the orderly keeping of the 
grounds, the supervision of the dormitories and public build- 
ings, and all that pertains to the immediate management of the 
students as to board and home life. 

The superintendent and his family live among the students, 
and give to them such care and attention as they would receive 
in a well organized Christian home. 

Except the day students, all are required to live in this 
department. 



66 Biddle University Catalog 

EXPENSES 

Tuition — There is no charge for tuition, except in the case 
of local students, who are charged two dollars per month. 

Board and Lodging — The cost of living is eight dollars per 
month of four weeks, payable monthly, in advance, which 
includes board, furnished rooms, light, fuel, and washing, 
except that of wearing apparel. 

Boarders are not received for less than one month, and no 
deduction can be made for absence, unless ordered by the 
Faculty. Any student who, without satisfactory arrangement, 
shall not pay within ten days from the first of the month, shall 
forfeit the privilege of the Institution. 

Contingent Fund — A deposit of one dollar on entering is 
required of each student, as a contingent fund, to pay for 
injury of furniture, etc. It will be returned when the student 
leaves school, or such part of it as may not be used to pay for 
injury done by him. 

PECUNIARY AID 

Candidates for the ministry, and young men of promise, 
will receive such aid as their necessities and the resources at 
command will allow. Friends in Scotland have established a 
fund of six thousand dollars, the interest of which is to be 
used to aid young men preparing for mission work in Africa. 

Should any beneficiary of these funds marry before com- 
pleting his course of study, thereupon his aid will be forfeited, 
nor will anyone be aided who uses tobacco in any form. 

RULES AND REGULATIONS 

i. Xo one under fourteen years of age will be admitted 
to the school. Applicants who are strangers to the Faculty 
must bring a satisfactory certificate of good character and 
steady, industrious habits. Every student, by his enrollment, 
contracts to obey the regulations of the University. 

2. Students are at all times expected to act with respect 
and courtesy toward their instructors and fellow-students, and

general permission is granted for shopping, etc., in the city. 

14. A monitor shall be appointed for each floor or build- 
ing, who shall report any neglect or disorder. 

15. Violation of the rules will subject the offender to 
discipline. 

16. The discipline is impartial and firm. Demerited stu- 
dents cannot take part in public exercises unless relieved by 
special action of the Faculty. Should the number of demerits 
reach twenty-five in any one term, the delinquent is subject to 
suspension. 

17. Each student on entering the University is required 
to sign the following: 

I, A. B. } now entering Biddle University as a student, do

LITERARY SOCIETIES AND READING CIRCLES 

There are four flourishing literary societies — the Mattoon, 
the Clariosophic, the Johnson, and the Douglas. The exer- 
cises consist of composition, discussion, and debate, and there 



jo Biddle University Catalog 

is a school court connected with them. These societies are 
governed by laws enacted by themselves, and their officers 
are also elected by themselves. The students are required each 
to become a member of one of these Societies, and to attend 
upon the exercises. The whole is under the supervision of the 
Faculty. 

There are also three reading circles — the Non Forma, the 
Literary Research, and the Olympian. These circles aim to 
keep pace with current events and opinions, to stimulate and 
develop literary taste and refinement, and to familiarize the 
members with the critical works of standard authors. 

CARNEGIE LIBRARY 
This magnificent structure was erected at a cost of fifteen 
thousand dollars. Of this amount, $12,500 was furnished by 
Mr. Andrew Carnegie, while $2,500 was collected from friends 
of the Institution in the South. 

Mr. Carnegie's donation was made on the condition that a 
similar amount be raised as a permanent endowment fund for 
the maintenance of the library. The $12,500 required for 
endowment purposes is a gift of generous friends, and it was 
secured by the faithful efiforts of the Freedmen's Board, 
together with the assistance of President McCrorey, who suc- 
ceeded in raising over $1,500 of that amount from colored 
Presbyterians in the South. 

There are more than eight thousand volumes now on the 
shelves of the library, and this number is being rapidly in- 
creased by purchase and by the gift of generous friends. 

In the spacious reading-room are found a set of the New 
International Encyclopedia and Webster's New International 
Dictionary. Here also is a large number of newspapers, 
secular and religious, and many of the best magazines in the 
country. 

( Ftmost care was exercised in the selection, arrangement, 
and classification of the books of the library, which is operated 
according to the latest method of library management. 



Biddle University Catalog 71 

The library is open daily, except Sunday, and students of 
all departments are allowed to borrow books under special 
regulations. 

In addition to the stack and reading-rooms, the library 
building affords space for store-rooms, a book-room, and a 
large, well-lighted, and thoroughly furnished Y. M. C. A. 
Hall. 

The facilities for lighting and heating this building and, in 
fact, the entire equipment, is strictly modern. 

The income on $12,500, the permanent endowment fund, 
is the amount to be used in the upkeep of the library. 

With the addition of the library to its already splendid 
educational advantages, the institution is prepared to supply a 
long-felt need. 

COLLEGE Y. M. C. A. 

The College branch of the Y. M. C. A. is in successful 
operation, with a large membership. It is earnestly desired 
that all of the students identify themselves with this noble 
work.

Biddle University Catalog 



Location and Historical Sketch 

Biddle University was founded in 1867, and is located 
at Charlotte, N. C. The Institution was named in memory 
of the late Major Henry J. Biddle, of Philadelphia, whose 
widow, Mrs. M, D. Biddle, wae one of its most Liberal 
supporters. It is chartered by the legislature of the State, 
and is under the auspicies of the Presbyterian Church in 
the United States of America. 

It stands at the radiating point of seven railroads, in 
the midst of a dense and comparatively intelligent colored 
population, and occupies a site of seventy acres, within the 
city limits. 

It is situated in the heart of the South Atlantic region, 
which contains the two synods of Atlantic and Catawba, 
having 318 colored churches, 212 ministers, scores of 
young men in preparation for the ministry, with a large 
number of schools and academies under their care. These 
schools and churches must be furnished with intelligent 
Christian teachers and preachers, who must be largely 
educated on the field, and in contact with the people 
among whom they are to labor. Such training is given 
here at less expense than it could be elsewhere; the 
student has the best opportunity for a Christian educa- 
tion, together with the refining influences of a Christian 
home; and he is kept at the same time in contact and 
sympathy with the people.

Description of Course. 

HEBREW. 
Dr. McCrorey. 

2. Junior Class: Hebrew begun. Recitation five 
times a week throughout the year. Text-books: Harper's 
Elements of Hebrew. Harper's Introductory Hebrew 
Method and Manual. Special emphasis is laid on the ac- 
quisition of a vocabulary. The inflection of the language 
and several hundred of the commonest words are memo- 
rized. There is a daily drill in reciprocal oral translation 
and in writing Hebrew. 

3. Middle Class: Reading from the Historical and 
Prophetical Books twice a week throughout the year. 
Text-books: Hebrew Bible. Harper's Hebrew Syntax. 
Driver's Hebrew Tenses. Special attention will be given 
to the Syntax, to enlarge the vocabulary, and rapid read- 
ing. 

4. Senior Class: (Elective.) Reading at sight from 
the Historical Books, Exegesis of Hebrew Prophecy, and 
Poetry, twice a week throughout the year.

sis twice a week throughout the year. The other Epistles 
of the captivity— Phillippians, Colossians, and Philemon— 

(13) 



14 Biddle University Catalog 

will be assigned for i>rivate reading. A summary of their 
contents will be considered in the class-room, and they 
will be required in the examination. 

(c) Senior Class will read Romans with Exegesis 
twice a week throughout the year. The other Epistles of 
the Third Missionary Journey — I. Corinthians, II. Corin- 
thians, and Galatians— will be assigned for private read- 
ing. Their scope and contents will be discussed in the 
school-room, and they will be required in the examina- 
tion. 

SYSTEMATIC THEOLOGY 
Dr. Partee 

In this department, the purpose is to have each stu- 
dent read, during his course, some standard work on Sys- 
tematic Theology, and in addition to this read some au- 
thority on Theism. 

This course of reading will be made the subject of the 
most thorough examination and free discussion, and will 
be supplemented by every available means which is likely 
to encourage and stimulate the student in his search of 
truth, and in preparation for its defense. 

Systematic Theology is begun in the second term of 
the Junior year and completed in the Senior year. The 
doctrines of Theology are presented didactically, histori- 
cally and problematically. The. order of topics pursued is: 
The nature, forms and sources of theology; the being of 
God, His nature and attributes: Trinity; the Divinity of 
Christ; the holy nature, necessity, perfection and extent of 
atonement; His kingdom; His humiliation and exaltation; 
vocation; regeneration; faith; justification; sanctification; 
the law of God; eschatology; the sacraments. 

HOMILETICS 

Dr. Jones 

The work of this dypartment is carried on throughout 
the Seminary course. In the Junior and Middle years, a 



Biddle University Catalog 17 

text-book on the "Preparation and Delivery of Sermons" 
is read. This is supplemented by exercises in the analy- 
sis of sermons, and preaching before the professors and 
students of the University weekly. 

In the Middle and Senior Classes much attention is 
given to the preparation and criticism of Sermon plans 
and extempore preaching. 

CHRISTIAN EVIDENCES 
Dr. Partee 

By means of text-books and discussions, the student 
is aided in verifying the Biblical proofs of Doctrine and 
Christian truth as represented in the symbols of the 
Church, and he is thus trained to express with facility and 
clearness the revealed will of God. 

PASTORAL THEOLOGY. 
Dr. Partee. 

The treatment of this subject is confined to the third 
year of the course. It is designed that each student shall 
become thoroughly acquainted with the best method of 
applying the message of salvation to the hearts and lives 
of men. Lectures are given accompanied by the use of 
text- books. 

The course includes the importance of ministerial pie- 
ty, proper habits of study, skill and ability in the various 
branches of our church work, the pastor's duty and rela- 
tion to the various courts of the church, and the various 
private and public duties pertaining to his office. 

CHURCH GOVERNMENT 
Dr. Partee 

Pour lectures on the general subject are given to the 
Junior Class. 

In the Middle Year, the Form of Government with 
proof text is taken up and pursued through one term and 
a minute comparison with other forms of church polity is 
made. 



18 Biddle University Catalog 

In the Middle and Senior Years, the Book of Discip- 
line is used as a text-book, accompanied by lectures. 

BIBLICAL HISTORY. 
Dr. Partee 

Since sacred history is of vital importance as a part of 
a thorough Theological Education, the subject is pursued 
through the entire three years' course. 

Biblical History is studied by the Junior Class, with 
the English version of the Old Testament as a text-book, 
and Smith's Old Testament History as a guide, and is 
taught by lectures and constant references to the typical 
and preparatory nature of the Old Testament. The Con- 
nection between sacred and profane history is pointed out, 
and attention given to Archeology, Geography, and Chro- 
nology. 

ECCLESIASTICAL HISTORY 
Dr. Jones 

This subject is taken up by the Middle Class, and 
taught by lectures, with text- books covering the period 
from Apostolic times to the Reformation — sixteenth cen- 
tury. 

The Senior class continues the subject from the Ref- 
ormation to the present time, devoting the second term 
to the history of the Presbyterian Church of the United 
States. 

During each year a carefully prepared thesis having 
for its subject some leading personage, epoch, or phase, 
etc., from sacred history, is required from each stu- 
dent. 

ENGLISH BIBLE 
Dr. Partee 

One may know a great deal about the Bible, and yet be 
unfamiliar with the Book itself. 

The design of this course is to secure to the students 
intimate first-hand knowledge of the Scriptures. 

To this end the Bible itself is the text-book. 



Biddle University Catalog 21 

CHRISTIAN SOCIOLOGY. 
Dr. MgCrorey. 

One hour per week throughout the Senior Year is de- 
voted to the study of Church and Social questions. 

Instruction is given partly by use of text-books and 
partly by lectures; the aim being to treat the subject in a 
practical manner. 

FORWARD MISSION STUDY 
Dr. Partee 

This study is pursued once a week throughout the 
course; and its purpose is that the students may gain a 
knowledge of the countries where missions are to be estab- 
lished and maintained, and of the people of those countries, 
their forms of government, racial peculiarities, religious 
beliefs and degree of intelligence; also their environments, 
difficulties, discouragements and needs. 

Such knowledge broadens the vision, increases giving, 
and leads to a higher life of service. 

Requirements For Promotion and Graduation 

A grade of sixty-five per cent is required in a single 
study for each term, and a general yearly average of sev- 
enty-five per cent, is required for promotion and for grad- 
uation. Each student attaining an average of ninety per 
cent, for the entire full course, is granted the degree of S. 
T. B. 

Further Information 

Period of Study— The regular course of study, as in 
other Seminaries of the Presbyterian Church, covers a 
period of three years. 

Practical Work — The practical work of the ministry is 
joined with the work of preparation, as the Theological 
students have opportunities of laboring as supplies in the 
neighboring churches, during vacation and in term time. 



22 Biddle University Catalog 

With the facilities at hand, special and successful ef. 
forts are made to aid students in obtaining vacation em- 
ployment along the line of their future work as teachers 
and preachers among the people. 

Rules and Regulations — Except in a few particulars, 
the students of the School of Theology are not subject to 
rules and regulations which govern those of the other 
schools of the University. 

Rooms— The rooms in McNamee Hall are reserved for 
candidates for the ministry. Each of the rooms is fur- 
nished with a bedstead, mattress, pillows, bureau, wash- 
stand, chairs, looking glass, etc., and is heated by steam. 

Expenses— There is no charge for tuition or room- 
rent. 

There is a charge of eight dollars per month for 
board, in connection with the boarding department, where 
all the students living on the grounds are required to 
board; the theological students, however, are provided 
with separate dining-room. The fee of eight dollars per 
month covers also expenses of fuel, light and washing of 
towels and bed-clothing. 

Examinations— The semi-annual examination will be 
conducted during the last week in January and the last 
week in May. The examination will be oral and written. 
Each student is required to take these examinations, and 
if by sickness or absence one fails to take them, he must 
submit to an examination with a corresponding class in a 
subsequent year.

Requirements for Admission 

Freshman Class— Fifteen units of secondary work are 
required for entrance, without condition, into the Fresh- 
man Class. 

Students presenting thirteen units will be entered 
conditionally, with the understanding that the two units 
lacking will be made up by the end of the Sophomore 
year. 

A unit in any subject signifies four sixty-minutes reci- 
tations per week for a period of thirty-six weeks and rep- 
resents a year's study, constituting approximately a quar- 
ter of a full year's work in a secondary school. 

This statement is designed to afford a standard of 
measurement for the work done in secondary schools. It 
takes the four year high school course as a basis, and as- 
sumes that the length of the school year is from thirty- 
six to forty weeks, that a period is from forty to sixty min- 
utes in length, and that the study is pursued for four or 
five periods a week; but, under ordinary circumstances, a 
satisfactory year's work in any subject can not be accom- 
plished in less than one hundred and twenty sixty-minute 
periods or their equivalent. Schools organized for any other 
than a four year-basis can, nevertheless, estimate their 
work in terms of this unit. 

Of the fifteen units necessary for entrance twelve are 
required, as follows: 

English. 3 Plane Geometry 1 

Latin 2^ History. 1 

Greek H Physics. i 

Elementary Algebra H Physiology i 

Physiography 1 

The other three unites may be selected from the following group, 
with the values attached. 

Solid Geometry \ Chemistry. \ 

Advanced Algebra \ German 1 

Trigonometry \ French 1 

Botany \ Bible 1

Biddle University Catalog 27 

Graduates of the High School of Biddle University 
and affiliated schools, having the standard High School 
course of study or its equivalent, are admitted to the 
Freshman Class on certificate. 

Other students making application for admission to 
the Freshman Class will be required to conform strictly 
to the entrance requirements, and will be admitted to the 
class by sustaining their examinations in the subjects 
mentioned in the requirements. 

Advance standing — All candidates seeking admission 
to advance standing should be prepared for thorough tests 
in the subject taught in the class next below the one they 
may desire to enter. 

Special Students — Mature persons of good character, 
who desire to pursue some special subjects, and who have 
had requisite preliminary training are allowed to enter 
the various courses of study in Biddle University without 
becoming candidates for degrees. 

Such students are subject to the same regulations re- 
garding attendance and examinations as candidates for 
degrees. 

Description of Requirements for Admission 

ENGLISH (3 units) 

The preparation in English has two main objects: (a) command 
of correct English, spoken and written, (b) ability to read with ac- 
curacy, intelligence, and appreciation. 

The first object requires instruction in grammar and composi- 
tion. English grammar should ordinarily be reviewed in the sec- 
ondary school; and correct spelling and grammatical accuracy 
should be rigorously exacted in connectton with all written work 
during the four years. The principles governing punctuation, dic- 
tion, paragraphs and the whole composition should be carefully 
studied; and practice in composition, oral as well as written, should 
extend throughout the secondary school period. Written exercises 
may well comprise narration, description and easy exposition and 
argument based upon simple outlines. It is advisable that subjects 
for this work betaken from the student's personal experience, gen- 
eral knowledge, and studies other than English, as well as from 
his reading in literature. Finally, special instruction in language 
and composition should be accompanied by concerted efforts of 
teachers in all branches to cultivate in the student the habit of using 



2H Biddle University Catalog 

good English in his recitations and various exercises, whether oral 
or written. 

In pursuit of %he second object, the student is required to read 
certain books chosen from two lists, headed respectively Reading 
and Study. 

In connection with both lists the student should develop the 
habit of reading- aloud, and should be encouraged to commit to 
memory some of the more notable passages in verse and also 
prose. 

In order that he may better appreciate the merits of literature, 
he is further advised to make a study of the most important facts 
in the lives of the authors whose works he reads, and to determine 
their place in literary history. 

Reading 

The aim of this part of the requirement is to foster in the stu- 
dent the habit of intelligent reading, and to develop a taste for 
good literature. He should read the books carefully, but his at- 
tention should not be so fixed upon details that he fails to appre- 
ciate the main purpose and the charm of what he reads.

LATIN (2i units) 

Elementary Latin. To gain credit of 2£ units on this part of 
the requirements, the pupils should do work in amounts not less 
than Caesar's Gallic War, Book I-IV; Cicero, the Oration against 
Catiline, for the Manilian Law, and for Archias; Nepos (Lives), 
and Sallust. 

GREEK (Elementary Greek, li units) 

The requirement in Elementary Greek includes: (1) Xenophon's 
Anabasis, Books I-IV, with attention not only to language, but to 



Biddle University Catalog 31 

subject-matter as well; (2) grammar, including- a familiar knowledge 
of inflection, word-formation and ordinary syntax. This will be 
tested by (a) question on a passage from the Anabasis; (b) transla- 
tion into Greek, with accents of simple English sentences. 

This requirement is the same as that of the College Entrance 
Examination Board in Greek a (i and ii), b, andg. 

I. ELEMENTARY ALGEBRA (one and one-half units) 

The requirements in Algebra covers the work through equations 
of the second degree, including the following subjects: the four 
fundamental operations for rational algebraic expressions; factor- 
ing, determination of highest common factor and lowest common 
multiple by factoring; fractions, including complex fractions, and 
ratio and proportion; linear equations, both numerical and literal, 
containing one or more unknown quantities; problems depending 
on linear equations; radicals, including the extraction of the square 
root of polynomials and of numbers; exponents, including the frac- 
tional and negative quadratic equations, both numerical and literal; 
simple cases of equations with one or more unknown quantities that 
can be solved by the methods of linear or quadratic equations; the 
binomial theorem for positive integral exponents; the formulae for 
the nth term, and the sum of the terms of arithmetical and geometric 
progressions, with applications. 

It is assumed that pupils will be required throughout the course 
to solve numerous problems which involve putting questions into 
equations. Some of these problems should be chosen from mensu- 
ration, from physics, and from commercial life. The use of graph- 
ical methods and illustrations, particularly in connection with the 
solution of equations, is also expected. 

This requirement is the same as that of the College Entrance 
Examination Board in Mathematics a (i and ii). 

PLANE GEOMETRY (one unit) 

The requirement in Plane Geometry includes the usual theorems 
and constructions of good text-books, including the general prop- 
erties of plane rectilinear figures; the circle and the measurement of 
angles; similar polygons; areas; regular polygons and the measure- 
ment of the circle; the solution of numerous original exercises, in. 
eluding loci problems; applications to the mensuration of lines and 
plane surfaces. 

Teachers of Geometry should lay stress on accuracy of state- 
ment and elegance of form as well as on clear and strict reasoning. 
Mere memorizing should be avoided. Special care should be taken 
that in the proof of a proposition no lines be drawn unless their 
construction is proved to be possible. 



32 Biddle University Catalog 

This requirement is the same as that of the College Entrance 
Examination Board in Mathematics e. 

HISTORY, Ancient History (one unit) 

Special attention to Greek and Roman History, but including 
also a short introductory study of the more ancient nations and the 
chief events of the early Middle Ages, down to the death of Charle- 
magne (814). 

MEDIEVAL AND MODERN EUROPEAN HISTORY (one unit) 
From the death of Charlemagne to the present time. 

ENGLISH HISTORY (one unit) 

AMERICAN HISTORY AND CIVIL GOVERNMENT (one unit) 

The examination in history will be so framed as to require com- 
parison and judgment on the pupil's part rather than mere memory. 
The examinations will presuppose the use of good text-books, at 
least, six hundred duodecimo pages of collateral reading, and 
practice in written work. Historical Novels, plays or poems will 
not be accepted in fulfillment of the requirement of collateral read- 
ing. The methods of instruction which the examination in history 
and Civil Government presuppose are substantially identical with 
those set forth in A History Syllabus for Secondary Schools (D. C. 
Heath and Co.); and the references for collateral reading given in 
that manual may be taken as indications of the kind of collateral 
reading that should be done. 

The requirements are the same as those of College Entrance 
Examination Board in History, a, b, c, d. 

PHYSICS (one-half unit) 

Preparation in Physics should include (1): The study of one 
standard text-book, for the purpose of obtaining a connected and 
comprehensive view of the subject. The student should be given

mainly for illustrations of the facts and phenomena of physics in 
their qualitative aspects and in their practical applications. (3) 
Individual laboratory work, consisting of experiments requiring at 
least the time of thirty double periods. The experiments performed 
by each student should number at least thirty. The work should 
be so distributed as to give a wide range of observation and prac- 
tice. The aim of laboratory work should be to supplement the 
pupil's fund of concrete knowledge and to cultivate his power of 
accurate observation and clearness of thought and expression. The 
exercises should be chosen with a view to furnishing forceful illus- 



Biddle University Catalog 33 

; rations of fundamental principles and their practical applications. 
They should be such as yield results capable of ready interpreta- 
ion, obviously in conformity with theory, and free from the dis" 
juise of unintelligible units. Slovenly work should not be tolera- 
ed, and the efforts for precision should not lead to the use of ap- 
paratus or processes so complicated as to obscure the principle in- 
volved. 

SOLID GEOMETRY (one-half unit) 

The requirements in Solid Geometry covers the usual theorems 
ind constructions of good text-books, including the relations of 
olanes and lines in space; the properties and measurements of 
prisms, pyramids, cylinders and cones; the sphere and the spheri- 
cal triangle; the solution of numerous original exeecises, includ- 
ng loci problems; application to the mensuration of surfaces and 
solids.

upon pronunciation; (2) the memorizing and frequent repetition of 
easy colloquial sentences; (3) drill upon the rudiments of grammar; 
that is, upon the inflection of the articles, of such nouns as belong 
to the language of every day life, of adjectives, pronouns, weak 
verbs, and the more usual strong verbs, also upon the use of the 
more common prepositions, the simples uses of the modal auxili- 
aries, and the elementary rules of syntax and word-order. 

At the end of the elementary course, the pupil should be able to 
read at sight and to translate, if called upon, by way of testing 
ability, to read any passage of very easy dialog or narrative prose? 
help being given upon unusual words and construction, to put into 
German short English sentences taken from the language of every- 
day life or based upon the text given for translation, and to answer 
questions upon the rudiments of the grammar as above stated.

Repuirements for Admission 

All applicants for admission to the High School must 
be at least fourteen years of age, and must furnish satis- 
factory testimonials of good moral character. 

First year — Applicants may be admitted to the First 
Year by examination in English Grammar and Composi- 
tion, Arithmetic, Geography and Americen History. The 
amount of work required in each of these subjects is equiv- 
alent to what is usually done in Grammar Schools. The 
aim of these examinations is to determine the candidate's 
fitness to enter the First Year. 

Advanced Standing — Admission to classes higher 
than the First year may be gained by the applicant's 
showing ability to do the work of the class just below the 
one he desires to enter. 

In the event, however, the candidate admitted to a 
class fails to show ability to do creditably the work of said 
class, he may be withdrawn from that class and placed 
where he belongs in the estimation of the faculty. 

Courses of Instruction 

The High School gives thorough and systematic instruction 
in the subjects required for admission to standard colleges. Stu- 
dents completing this course, and not desiring to further pursue 
their duties, have a good foundation for useful citizenship. 

Two courses are offered— one leading to the Classical Course 
of the College, the other to the Scientific. The Scientific Course is 
identical with the Classical in the First and in the Second Year. 
In the Third and the Fourth Year of the Scientific Course German 
is substituted for Greek or Latin. 

The numerals indicate the number of weekly sixty-minute Reci- 
tation Periods.

School of Industries 



Prof T. H. McNeil 
Superintendent 



All students in the Preparatory Course are required 
to take some trade, and report twice a week for work in 
the Industrial School. College Students may also take 
trades. 

At present, several trades are being taught — Carpen- 
try, Printing, Bricklaying, Plastering, Tailoring, Shoe- 
making, Blacksmithing, etc. Each student is allowed to 
'have his choice of trades being taught, but no change will 
be allowed after the choice is once made. 

CARPENTRY AND MECHANICAL DRAWING 
Prof. T. H. McNeil, A. M. 

Carpentry and Joining are taught in a room which is 
being provided with twelve cabinet benches, each of which 
is fitted up with a set of carpenters' tools. 

Students are taught the use and care of these tools, 
the principles of wood-working— f rom drawing and models 
—and have also such practical instruction as can be had 
from improvements and repairs of the building and furni- 
ture of the University. 

Besides doing the necessary work for the School, a 
i limited amount of work is done for outside parties. Three 
professors' houses have been built by the students, also a 
boiler house, the new A. & M. Building, and extensive re- 
pairs have been made on other buildings. 

PRINTING 
Prof. William E. Hill 

This office is equipped as any regular printing estab- 
lishment would be. Besides the ordinary office furniture, 
it has three printing presses.

LITERARY SOCIETIES AND READING CIRCLES 

There are four flourishing literary societies — the Mat- 
toon, the Clariosophic, the Johnson and the Douglas. The 
exercises consist of composition, discussion and debate, 
and there is a school court connected with them. These 
societies are governed by laws enacted by themselves, and 
their officers are also elected by themselves. The students 
are required each to become a member of one of these 
Societies, and to attend upon the exercises. The whole is 
under the supervision of the Faculty. 

There are also three reading circles — the Non Forma, 
the Literary Research, and the Olympian. These circles 
aim to keep pace with current events and opinions, to stim- 
ulate and develop literary taste and refinement, and to fa- 
miliarize the members with the critical works of stand- 
ard authors. 

CARNEGIE LIBRARY 

There are nine thousand volumes now on the shelves 
of the library, and this number is being rapidly increased 
by purchase and by the gift of generous friends. 

In the spacious reading-room are found a set of the 
New International Encyclopedia and Webster's New In- 
ternational Dictionary. Here also is a large number of 
newspapers, secular and religious, and many of the best 
magazines in the country. 

Utmost care was exercised in the selection, arrange- 
ment, and classification of the books of the library, which 
is operated according to the latest method of library 
management. 

The library is opened daily, except Sunday, and stu- 
dents of all departments are allowed to borrow books un- 
der special regulations. 

In addition to the stack and reading-rooms, the library 
building affords space for store-rooms, a book room, and a 
large, well-lighted and thoroughly furnished Y. M. C. A. 
Hall. 



Biddle University Catalog 69 

The facilities for lighting and heating this building, in 
fact, the entire equippment, is strictly modern. 

The income on $12,500, the permanent library endow- 
ment fund, is the amount to be used in the upkeep of the 
library. 

With the addition of the library to its already splen - 
did educational advantages, the Institution is prepared to 
supply a long- felt need, 

COLLEGE Y. M. C. A.

Biddle University Catalog 



Location and Historical Sketch 

Biddle University was founded in 1867, and is located 
at Charlotte, N. C. The Institution was named in memory 
of the late Major Henry J. Biddle, of Philadelphia, whose 
widow Mrs. M. D. Biddle, was one of its most liberal sup- 
porters. The first eight acres of land was given by Mr. 
William R. Myers of Charlotte, N. C. It is chartered by 
the legislature of the State, and is under the auspices of 
the Presbyterian Church in the United States of Ameri- 
ca. 

It stands at the radiating point of seven railroads, in 
the midst of a dense and comparatively intelligent colored 
population, and occupies a site of seventy acres within the 
city limits. 

It is situated in the heart of the South Atlantic region, 
which contains the two synods of Atlantic and Catawba, 
having 318 colored churches, 212 ministers, scores of 
young men in preparation for the ministry, with a large 
number of schools and academies under their care. These 
schools and churches must be furnished with intelligent, 
Christian teachers and preachers, who must be largely 
educated on the field, and in contact with the people among 
whom they are to labor. Such training is given here at 
less expense than it could be elsewhere; the student has 
the best opportunity for a Christian education, together 
with the refining influences of a Christian Home; and he 
is kept at the same time in contact and sympathy with the 
people.

Requirements for Admission. 

This school is open to young men of all denominations. 
Candidates for admission must produce evidence that 
they are members in good and regular standing in some 
evangelical church, that they possess competent talent, 
and that they have been regularly graduated at some 
college or university, or in some way they have re- 
ceived an equivalent for the training of a college course. 
Applicants for admission to an advanced standing mnst

dismission ere he can be received.

will be assigned for private rending. A summary of their 
contents will be considered in the class-room, and they 

will be required in the examination. 

Senior Class will read Romans with Exegesis 
twice a week throughout the year. The other Epistles of 
the Third Missionary Journey— I. Corinthians, II. Corin- 
thians, and Galatians — will be assigned for private read- 
ing. Their scope and contents will be discussed in the 
school- room, and they will be required in the examina- 
tion. 

SYTEMATIC THEOLOGY 
Dr. Partee. 

In this department, the purpose is to have each stu- 
dent read during his course, some standard work on Sys- 
tematic Theology, and in addition to this read some au- 
thority on Theism. 

This course of reading will be made the subject of the 
most thorough examination and free discussion, and will 
be supplemented by every available means which is likely 
to encourage and stimulate the student in his search of 
truth, and in preparation for its defense. 

Systematic Theology is begun in the second term of 
the Junior year and is completed In the Senior year. The 
doctrines of Theology are presented didactically, histori- 
cally and problematically. The order of topics pursued is: 
The nature, forms and sources of Theology; the being of I 
God, His nature and attributes; Trinity; the Divinity of 
Christ; the holy nature, necessity, perfection and extent 
of the atonement; His kingdom; his humiliation and exal- 
tation; vocation; regeneration; faith; justification; sanctifi- 
cation; the law of God; eschatology; the sacraments. 

HOMILETICS. 

Dr. Jones 

The work of this department is carried on through- 
out the Seminary course. In the Junior and Middle 




r Jl 

— 
< 
Q

O 



Biddle University Catalog 17 

years, a text-book on the " Preparation and Delivery of 
Sermons " is read. This is supplemented by exercises 
in the analysis of sermons, and preaching before the pro- 
fessors and students of the University weekly. 

In the Middle and Senior Clases much attention is 
given to the preparation and criticism of sermon plans 
and extempore preaching. 

CHRISTIAN EVIDENCES 
Dr. Partee 

By means of text-books and discussions, the student 
is aided in verifying the Biblical proofs of Doctrine and 
Christian truth as represented in the symbols of the 
Church, and he is thus trained to express with facility and 
clearness the revealed will of God. 

PASTORAL THEOLOGY 
Dr. Partee 

The treatment of this subject is confined to the third 
year of the course. It is designed that each student shall 
become thoroughly acquainted with the best method of 
applying the message of salvation to the hearts and lives 
of men. Lectures are given, accompanied by the use of 
text-books. 

The course includes the importance of ministerial pie- 
ty, proper habits of study, skill and ability in the various 
branches of our church work, the pastor's duty and rela- 
tion to the various courts of the church, and the various 
private and public duties pertaing to his office. 

CHURCH GOVERNMENT. 
Dr. Partee 

Four lectures on the general subject are given to the 
Junior Class. 

In the Middle Year the Form of Government with 
proof text is taken up and pursued through one term and 
a minute comparison with other forms of Church polity is 
made. 



18 Biddle University Catalog 

In the Middle and Senior Years, the Book of Disci- 
pline is used as a text-book, accompanied by lectures. 

BIBLICAL HISTORY. 
Dr. Partee 

Since sacred history is of vital importance as a part of 
a thorough theological education, the subject is pursued 
through the entire three years' course. 

Biblical History is studied by the Junior Class, with 
the English version of the Old Testament as a text-book 
and Smith's Old Testament History as a guide, and is 
taught by lectures and constant references to the typical 
and preparatory nature of the Old Testament. The con- 
nection between sacred and profane history is pointed out, 
and attention given to Archeology, Geography, and Chro- 
nology. 

ECCLESIASTICAL HISTORY 

Dr. Jones. 

This subject is taken up by the Middle Class, and 
taught by lectures, wiMi text-books covering the period 
from Apostolic times to the Reformation— sixteenth cen- 
tury. 

The Senior Class continues the subject from the Ref- 
ormation to the present time, devoting the second term to 
the history of the Presbyterian Church of the U. S. A. 

During each year a carefully prepared thesis having 
for its subject some leading personage, epoch, or phase, 
etc., from sacred history, is required from each student. 

ENGLISH BIBLE 
Dr. Ellerson 

One may know a great deal about the Bible, and yet 
be unfamilar with the Book itself. 

The design of this course is to secure to the students 
intimate first-hand knowledge of the Scriptures. 

To this end the Bible itself is the text-book. 



Biddle University Catalog 21 

CHRISTIAN SOCIOLOGY 
Dr. McCrorey 

One hour per week throughout the Senior Year is de- 
voted to the study of Church and Social questions. 

Instruction is given partly by the use of text-books 
and partly by lectures; the aim being to treat the subject 
in a practical manner.

Dr. Ellersox 

This study is pursued once a week throughout the 
course; and its purpose is that the students may gain a 
knowledge of the countries where missions are to be estab- 
lished and maintained, and of the people of those coun- 
tries, their forms of government, racial peculiarities, re- 
ligious beliefs and degree of intelligence; also their envi- 
ronments, difficulties, discouragements and needs. 

Such knowledge broadens the vision, increases giving, 
and leads to a higher life of service. 

Requirements For Promotion and Graduation. 

A grade of sixty-five per cent is required in a single 
study for each term, and a general yearly average of sev- 
enty-five per cent, is required for promotion and for grad- 
uation. Each student attaining an average of ninetyper 
cent, for the entire full course, is granted the degree of 
S. T. B. 

Further Information. 

Period of Study— The regular course of study, as in 
other seminaries of the Presbyterian Church, covers a 
period of three years. 

Practical Work — The practical work of the ministry 
is joined with the work of preparation, as the theological 
students have opportunities of laboring as supplies in the 
neighboring churches, during vacation and in term time. 



22 Biddle University Catalog 

With the facilities at hand, special and successful ef- 
forts are made to aid students in obtaining vacation em- 
ployment along the line of their future work as teachers 
and preachers among the people. 

Rules and Regulations — Except in a few particulars, 
the students of the School of Theology are not subject to 
rules and regulations which govern those of the other 
Schools of the University. 

Rooms— The rooms in McNamee Hall are reserved for 
candidates for the ministry. Each of the rooms is fur- 
nished with a bedstead, mattress, pillows, bureau, wash- 
stand, chairs, looking glass, etc., and is heated by steam. 

Expenses— There is no charge for tuition or room- 
rent. 

There is a charge of eight dollars per month for 
board, in connection with the boarding department, where 
all the stndents living on the grounds are required to 
board; the theological students, however, are provided 
with separate dining-room. The fee of eight dollars per 
month covers also expenses of fuel, light and washing of 
towels and bed clothing. 

Examinations — The semi-annual examination will be 
conducted during the last week in January and the last 
week in May. The examinations will be oral and written. 
Each student is required to take these examinations, and 
if by sickness or absence one fails to take them, he must

Requirements for Admission. 

Freshman Class — Fifteen units of secondary work are 
required for entrance, without condition, into the Fresh- 
man Class. 

Students presenting thirteen units will be entered 
conditionally, with the understanding that the two units 
lacking will be made up by the end of the Sophomore 
year. 

A unit in any subject signifies four sixty-minute reci- 
tations per week for a period of thirty-six weeks and re- 
presents a year's study, constituting approximately a 
quarter of a full year's work in a secondary school. 

This statement is designed to afford a standard of 
measurement for the work done in secndary schools. It 
takes the four year high school course as a basis, and as- 
sumes that the length of the school year is from thirty- 
six to forty weeks, that a period is from forty to sixty 
minutes in length, and that the study is pursued for four 
or five periods a week;but, under ordinary circumstances, 
a satisfactory year's work in any subject can not be ac- 
complished in less than one hundred and twenty sixty 
minute periods or their equivalent. Schools organized for 
any other than a four year basis can, nevertheless, esti- 
mate their work in terms of this unit. 

Of the fifteen units necessary for entrance twelve are 
required, as follows: 

English _._ 3 Plane Geometry 1 

Latin 2\ History 1 

Greek \\ Physics. \ 

Elementary Algebra \\ Physiology \ 

Physiography \ 

The other three units may be selected from the following group, 
with the values attached:

furnish lodging to all boarding students. Rooms are 
steam-heated and electric lighted and each is furnished 
with a bedstead, mattress and two pillows, washstands, 
two chairs, mirror, and towels and bed-linen laundered by 
the Institution. 

As far as is necessary rooms in McNamee Hall are re- 
served for theological students and candidates for the 
ministry. 

PEUNIARY AID 

Candidates for the ministry, and young men of prom- 
ise, will receive such aid as their necessities and the re- 
sources at command will allow. Friends in Scotland 
have established a fund of six thousand dollars, the inter- 
est of which is to be used to aid young men in preparing 
for mission work in Africa. 

Should any beneficiary of these funds marry before 
completing his course of study, thereupon his aid will be 
forfeited; nor will any one be aided who uses tobacco in 
any form.

LITERARY SOCIETIES AND READING CIRCLES 
There are four flourishing literary societies — the Mat" 
toon, the Clariosophic, the Johnson, and the Douglas. The 
exercises consist of composition, discussion and debate. 
These societies also have school courts connected with 
them, are governed by laws enacted by their members, 
and are presided over by officers elected from the mem- 
bers. Every student is required to become a member of 
one of these societies, and to attend upon the exercises. 
The whole is under the supervision of the Faculty. 

There are also three reading circles — the Non Forma, 
the Literary Research, and the Olympian. These circles 
aim to keep pace with current events and opinions, to stim- 
ulate and develop literary taste and refinement, and to fa- 
miliarize the members with the works of standard au- 
thors. 

CARNEGIE LIBRARY 

There are over nine thousand volumes now on the 
shelves of the library, and this number is being rapidly 
increased by purchase and by the gift of generous 
friends. 

In the spacious reading. room are found a set of the 
New International Encyclopedia and Webster's New Inter- 
national Dictionary. Here also is a large number of news- 
papers, secular and religious, and many of the best maga- 
zines in the country. 

Utmost care was exercised in the selection, arrange- 
ment, and classification of the books of the library, which 
is operated according to the latest method of library man- 
agement. 

The library is open daily except Sunday, and stu- 
dents of all departments are allowed to borrow books un- 
der special regulations. 

In addition to the stack and reading-rooms, the li- 
brary building affords space for store-rooms, a book-room, 
and a large well-lighted and thoroughly furnished Y. M. 
C. A. Hall. 



70 Biddle University Catalog 

The facilities for lighting and heating this building, 
in fact, the entire equipment is strictly modern. 

The income on $12,500, the permanent library endow- 
ment fund, is the amount to be used in the upkeep of the 
library. 

Among the latest contributions to the library, may be 
mentioned a number of valuable books given by the Rev. 
Matthew Ijams, now in his eighty-first year. 

Deserving special mention is the splendid library of 
the late Rev. Henry D. Lindsay, D. D., Pittsburg, Pa., which 
was given by Mrs. H. D. Lindsay. With the addition of 
the library to its already splendid educational advantages, 
the Institution is prepared to supply a long-felt need. 

COLLEGE Y. M. C. A. 

The College branch of the Y. M. C. A. is in successful 
operation, with a large membership. It is earnestly de- 
sired that all the students identify themselves with this 
noble work.

Location and Historical Sketch. 

Biddle University was founded in 1867, and is located at 
Charlotte, N. C. The Institution was named in memory of 
the late Major Henry J. Biddle, of Philadelphia, whose wid- 
ow, Mrs. M. D. Biddle, was one of its most liberal supporters. 
The first eight acres of land was given by Mr.. William R. 
Myers of Charlotte, N. C. It is chartered by the legislature 
of the State, and is under the auspices of the Presbyterian 
Church in the United States of America. 

It stands at the radiating point of seven railroads, in the 
midst of a dense and comparatively intelligent colored popula- 
tion, and occupies a site of seventy acres within the city limits. 

It is situated in the heart of the South Atlantic region, 
which contains the two Synods of Atlantic and Catawba, hav- 
ing 322 colored churches, 211 ministers, scores of young men 
in preparation for the ministry, with a large number of schools 
and academies under their care. These schools and churches 
must be furnished with intelligent Christian teachers and 
preachers, who must be largely educated on the field, and in 
contact with the people among whom they are to labor. Such 
training is given here at less expense than it could be else- 
where; the student has the best opportunity for a Christian 
education, together with the refining influences of a Christian 
home; and he is kept at the same time in contact and sympa- 
thy with the people.

Requirements for Admission. 

This school is open to young men of all denominations. 
Candidates for admission must produce evidence that they are 
members in good and regular standing in some evangelical 
church, that they possess competent talent, and that they have 
been regularly graduated from some college or university, or 
in some way they have received an equivalent for the training 
of a college course. Applicants for admission to an advanced 
standing must present a letter of dismissal from some other 
theological seminary, or be prepared for examination on the 
subjects which have been pursued by the class which they de- 
sire to enter. 

When a student who has been a member of any other 
theological school seeks admission into this, he must produce 
certificate of good standing and orderly dismission ere he can 
be received. 

In exceptional cases, promising young men w T ho have not 
had the benefit of a full college course will be received and will 
be allowed to pursue an elective course.

SYSTEMATIC THEOLOGY— Db. Parti:e. 

In this department, the purpose is to have each student 
read during: his course, some standard work on Systematic 
Theology, and in addition to this read some authority on 
Theism. 

This course of reading* will be made the subject of the 
most thorough examination and free discussion, and will he 
supplemented by every available means which is likely to en- 
courage and stimulate the student in his search of truth, and in 
preparation for its defense. 

Systematic Theology is begun in the second semester of 
the Junior year and is completed in the Senior year. The doc- 
trines of Theology are presented didactically, historically and 
problematically. The order of topics pursued is: The nature, 
forms and sources of Theology; the being of God, His nature 
ami attributes; Trinity; the Divinity of Christ; the holy nature, 
necessity, perfection and extent of the atonement; His kingdom; 
His humiliation and exaltation; vocation; regeneration; faith; 
justification; sanctification; the law of God; eschatology; the 
sacraments. 

HOMILETICS— Dr. Jones. 

The work of this department is carried on throughout the 
seminary course. In the Junior and Middle years, a text-book 
on the Preparation and Delivery of Sermons" is read. This- 
is supplemented by exercises in the analysis of sermons, and 
preaching before the professors and students of the University 
weekly. 

In the Middle and Senior classes much attention is given 
to the preparation and criticism of sermon plans and extempore 
preaching. 

CHRISTIAN EVIDENCES— Dr. Pari -kk. 

By means of text-books and discussions, the student is 
aided in verifying the Biblical proof's of Doctrine and Christian 
truth as represented in tin; symbols of the Church, and he is 
thus trained to express with facility and clearness the revealed 
will of Cod. 



Bir>r>rE University Catalog 13 

PASTORAL THEOLOOY— Dr. Partee. 

The treatment of this subject is confined to the third year 
of the course. It is designed that each student shall become 
thoroughly acquainted with the best method of applying the 
message of salvation to the hearts and lives of men. Lectures 
;tre given, accompanied by the use of text-books. 

The course includes the importance of ministerial piety, 
proper habits of study, skill and ability in the various branches 
of our church work, the pastor's duty and relation to the various 
courts of the church, and the various private and public duties 
pertaining to his office* 

CHURCH GOVERNMENT— Dr. Parike. 

Four lectures on the general subject are given to the Junior 
Class. 

In the Middle Year the Form of Government with proof 
text is taken up and pursued through one semester and a minute 
•comparison with other forms of Church polity is made. 

In the Middle and Senior years, the Book of Discipline is 
used as a text-book, accompanied by lectures. 

BIBLICAL HISTORY— Dr. Pabteb. 

Since sacred history is of vital importance as a part of a 
thorough theological education, the subject is pursued through 
the entire three year's course. 

Biblical History is studied by the Junior Class,, with the 
English version of the Old Testament as a text-book and Smith's 
Old Testament History as a guide, and is taught by lectures 
and constant references to the typical and preparatory nature 
of the Old Testament. The connection between sacred and pro- 
fane history is pointed out, and attention given to Archeology, 
(Tocography, and Chronology. 

ECCLESIASTICAL HISTORY- Dr. Jokes,

Requirements for Admission. 

Freshman Class — Fifteen units of secondary work are re- 
quired for entrance, without condition, into the Freshman 

class. 

Students presenting thirteen units will be entered con- 
ditionally, with the understanding that the two units lacking 
will be made up by the end of the Sophomore year. 

A unit in any subject signifies four sixty-minute recitations 
• per week for a period of thirty-six weeks and represents a year's 
study, constituting approximately a quarter of a full year's 
work in a secondary school. 

This statement is designed to afford a standard of measure- 
ment for the work done in secondary schools. It takes the 
tour year high school course as a basis, and assumes that the 
length of the school year is from thirty-six to forty weeks, 
that a period is from forty to sixty minutes in length, and that 
the study is pursued for four or five periods a week; but, 
under ordinary circumstances, a satisfactory year's work in any 
subject cannot be accomplished in less than one hundred and 
twenty sixty minute periods or their equivalent. Schools or- 
ganized for any other than a four year basis can, nevertheless, 
estimate their work in terms of this unit. 

Of the fifteen units necessary for entrance twelve, are re- 
quired, as follows: 

Engish 3 Plane Geometry 1 

Latin 2% History 1 

Greek \% Physics % 

Elementary Algebra \% Physiology % 

Physiography % 

The other three units may be selected from the following group, 
with the values attached: 

Solid Geometry % Chemistry % 

Advanced Algebra % German 1 

Trigonometry % French 1 

Botany .% Bible 1

DEPARTMENT OF MATHEMATICS 

Professor Douglass. 

Solid Geometry: This course is given in the Freshman 
rear and covers the work usually found in a good text-hook, 
distinguishing-, however, between the propositions that are 
strictly essential and those that are only supplementary in 
character. The mere memorizing of proofs is discouraged and 
exercises are assigned to train the student into the habit of in- 
dependent thought and accurate reasoning. 

Trigonometry: Plane Trigonometry is studied during the 
Sophomore year. The course includes definitions and the re- 
lations of the six trigonometric functions as ratios, general for- 
mulas, solutions of right and oblique triangles, using both 
jtatural functions and logarithms, inverse functions, radian, 
graphs of various functions, and the theory of trigonometric 
equations. 

Advanced Algebra: Under this subject the following top- 
ics will be dealt with: Synthetic Division, New Symbols, Al- 
gebraic Symmetry, Permutations and Combinations, Probabili- 
ty, Complex Numbers, Determinants, Theory of Equations and 
the general solution of Numerical Equations. 

Analytical Geometry: During the first half of the Junior 
year a brief course in Analytical Geometry is given which will 
acquaint the student with those parts that are essential for the 
study of Calculus. It includes coordinates and equations, the 
straight line, the circle, the parabola, the ellipse, the hyberbo- 
la, tangents and normal secants. 

Calculus: The latter half of the Junior year is given to 
C il cuius and it is treated under the following heads: Functions 
and Limits, Differentiation, Application, Intergration and 
Partial Derivations. 

DEPARTMENT OF HISTORY— Dr. Martin. 

Junior Year: History of Western Europe. This course 
aims to give all the important knowledge of the movements, 
customs, institutions and achievements of Western Europe 
from the downfall of the Roman Empire to our own day. 

Discussions upon the heritage of Rome, migration of the 



2(> Biddle University Catalog 

races, matters of first-rate importance; as Feudalism, the Medi- 
aeval Church, the Renaissance, are thoroughly reviewed, and 
other germinal forces and incidents which explain the develop- 
ment of Modern Europe, and guide in forming a clear compre- 
hension of the present European states and policies. Impor- 
tant questions arising in the course of the recitations from the 
text-book are always supplemented by a full and free discus- 
sion. 

Senior Year: English History. The purpose of this course 
is to study the different phases and trace the varied influences 
which brought about the growth of English institutions and 
English civilization, struggle for constitutional government 
against despotism, the extension of the Empire, the diffusion, 
development and advances along all lines, symbolic of this 
people. 

The French Revolution. A complete survey is made of the 
things and occurrences incident to this terrible episode in 
French History, in removing the many absurd and vexatious 
laws and customs with abuses, tiring the whole nation, from 
the king to the peasant, and the substitution of the modern 
and more rational order for the long standing disorder. 

American History: A thorough study of the facts and 
forces underlying American institutions, and which have 
formed the present day conception of our national develop- 
ment. 

Special emphasis is placed upon the perusal of docu- 
ments of authoritative source, such as state papers, private 
journals and letters, extracts from speeches and writings of 
public men, and newspaper narrative and comments. 

The political, social, economic and sectional issues are 
considered. The United States Constitution, with amend- 
ments and various Reconstruction nets of Congress are critical- 
ly studied for the information given concerning the re-adjusted 
rights of an emancipated and enfranchised race,.

ATHLETICS. 

Athletic sports are permitted and encouraged within 
certain prescribed limits, chiefly for the following reasons: 1st, 
They provide wholesome recreation; 2nd, They give healthful 
exercise in the open air. Growing youths naturallv seek re- 
creation of some kind. This recreation should be something 
radically different from their sedentary habits of study, and 
•should contribute directly to their physical well-being. The 
University owns no gymnasium, so instead, a variety of games 
has be?n introduced with the end in view that all of the stu- 
dents may participate in some form of systematic exercise. The 
faculty maintains supervision over the athletics in order that 
it may be assured that the various sports are conducted on a 
high and clean basis, and that they are not indulged in to the 
extent that studies or duties are neglected. 

The Athletic Association, under the direction of which 
the games of baseball, football, basketball, and tennis are played, 
is a member of the North Carolina Inter-Collegiate Athletic 
Association, an organization that has done much to establish 
and maintain a high standard in college athletics. Any stu- 
dent may become a member of the Biddle University Athletic 
Association by paying the annual fee of fifty cents.

LITERARY SOCIETIES AND READING CIRCLES 

There, are four flourishing literary societies — the Mattoon, 
the Clariosophic, the Johnson, and the Douglass. The exer- 
cises consist of composition, discussion and debate. These so- 
cieties also have school courts connected with them, are 
governed by laws enacted by their members, and are presided 
over by officers elected from the members. Every student is 
required to become a member of one of these societies, and to 
attend upon the exercises. The whole is under the supervision 
of the Faculty. 

There are also three reading circles— the IS r on Forma, the 
Literary Research, and the Olympia. These circles aim to 
keep pace with current events and opinions, to stimulate and 
develop literary taste and refinement, and to familiarize the 
members with the works of standard authors. 

CARNEGIE LIBRARY 

There are about ten thousand volumes now on the shelves 
of the library, and this number is being- rapidly increased by 
purchase and by the gift of g'enerous friends. 

In the spacious reading* room are found a set of the New 
International Encyclopedia and Webster's New International 
Dictionary. Here also is a large number of newspapers, secu- 
lar and religious, and many of the best mag'azines in the country. 

Utmost care was exercised in the selection, arrangement, 
and classification of the books of the library, which is operated 
according to the latest method of library management. 

The library is open daily except Sunday, and students of 
all departments arc allowed to borrow books under special reg - 
illations. 

In addition to the stack and reading-rooms, the library 
building affords space for store-rooms, a book room, and a large 
well-lighted and thoroughly furnished V. M. C. A. Hall.

Location and Historical Sketch. 

I 

Biddle University was founded in 1867, and is located in 
Charlotte, N. C. The Institution was named in memory of 
1hc late Major Henry J. Biddle, of Philadelphia, whose wid- 
ow, Mrs. M. D. P>iddle, was one of its most liberal sup- 
porters. The first eight acres of land were given by Mr. 
VVjJliam R. Myers of Charlotte, N-. C. It is chartered by the 
legislature of the State, and is under the Presbyterian 
Church in the United States of America. 

It stands at the radiating point of seven railroads, in the 
midst of a dense and comparatively intelligent popula- 
tion, and occupies a site of seventy acres within the city 
limits. 

It is situated in the heart of the South Atlantic region, 
which contains the two Synods of Atlantic and Catawba, 
having 322 colored churches, 211 ministers, scores of young 
men in preparation for the ministry, with a large number 
of schools and academies under their care. These schools 
and churches must be furnished with intelligent Christian 
leathers and preachers, who must be largely educated on 
the field, and in contact with the people among whom they 
are to labor'. Such training is given here at Jess expense 
than it could be elsewhere ; the student has the best op- 
portunity for a Christian education together with the refin- 
ing influences of a Christian home; and he is kept at the 
Same time in contact and syir.pathy with the people.

lion to the present time, devoting the second term to the 
history of the Presbyterian Church of the V. S. A. 

During each year a carefully prepared thesis having for 
its subject some leading personage, epoch, or phase, etc., 
from sacred history, is required from each student.

of the countries where missions are to be established and 
maintained, and of the people of those countries, their forms

Requirements for Admission. 

Freshman Class — Fifteen units of secondary work are re- 
quired for entrance, without condition, into the Freshman 
class. Students presenting thirteen units will be entered 
conditionally, with the understanding that the two units 
lacking will be made up by the end of the Sophomore year. 

A unit in any subject signifies four sixty-minute recita- 
tions per w r eek for a period of thirty-six weeks and repre- 
sents a year's study, constituting approximately a quarter 
of a full year's work in a secondary school. 

This statement is designed to afford a standard of meas- 
urement for the work done in secondary schools. It takes 
the four year high school course as a basis, and assumes 
that the length of the school year is from thirty-six to forty 
weeks, that a period is from forty to sixty minutes in 
length, and that the study is pursued for four or five pe- 
riods a week ; but under ordinary circumstances, a satis- 
tactory year's work in any subject cannot be accomplished 
in less than one hundred and twenty sixty minute periods 
or their equivalent. Schools organized for any other than 
a four year basis can, nevertheless estimate their work in 
terms of this unit. 

Of the fifteen units necessary for entrance twelve, are 
required, as follows: 

English ^ 3 Plane Geometry 1 

Latin 2% History 1 

Greek 1V 2 Physics V 2 

Elementary Algebra IV2 Physiology !/2

ATHLETICS 

Athletic sports are permitted and encouraged withir 
certain prescribed limits, chiefly for the followoing rea- 
sons : 1st, They provide wholesome recreation ; 2nd 
They give healthful exercise in the open air. Growing 
youths naturally seek recreation of some kind. This 
recreation should be something radically different from 
their sedentary habits of study, and should contribute 
directly to their physical well-being. The University 



BIDDLE TNIVKKSITY CATALOG 57 

owns no gymnasium, so instead, a variety of games has 
been introduced with the end in view that all of the 
students may participate in some form of systematic 
exercise. The faculty maintains supervision over the 
athletics in order that it may be assured that the various 
sports are conducted on a high and clean basis, and that 
they are not indulged in to the extent that studies or 
duties are neglected. 

The Athletic Association, under the direction of 
which the games of baseball, football, basketball, and 
tennis are played, is a member of the North Carolina In- 
ter-Collegiate Athletic Association, an organization that 
has done much to establish and maintain a high standard 
in college athletics. Any student may become a mem- 
ber of the Biddle University Athletic Association by, pay- 
ing the annual fee of fifty cents.

LITERARY SOCIETIES AND READING CIRCLES 

There are four flourishing literary societies — the Mat- 
toon, the Clarisophic, the Johnson, and the Douglass. The 
exercises consist of composition, discussion and debate. 
These societies also have school courts connected with 
them, are governed by laws enacted by their members, 
and are presided over by officers elected from the mem- 
bers. Every student is required to become a member 
of one of these societies, and to attend upon the exer- 
cises. The whole is under the supervision of the Faculty. 

There are also three reading circles — the Non Forma, 
the Literary Research, and the Olympia. These circles 
aim to keep pace with current events and opinions, to 
stimulate and develop literary taste and refinement, and 
to familiarize the members with the works of standard 
autecrs. 

CARNEGIE LIBRARY 

There are about ten thousand volumes now on the 
shelves of the library, and this number is being rapidly 
increased by purchase and by the gift of generous friends. 

In the spacious reading room are found a set of the 
New International Encyclopedia and Webster's New In- 
ternational Dictionary. Here also is a large number of 
newspapers, secular and religious, and many of the best 
magazines in the country. 

Utmost care was exercised in the selection, arrange- 
ment, and classification of the books of the library, which 
is operated according to the latest method of library 
management.

I « 1IDDLE UNIVERSITY was founded in 1867, and is 
[ PJ located in Charlotte, N. C. The Institution was 
Pl^m named in memory of the late Major Henry J. Bid- 
die, of Philadelphia, whose widow, Mrs. M. D. 
Biddle, was one of its most liberal supporters. The first 
eight acres of land were given by Mr. William K. Myers, 
of Charlotte, N. C. It is chartered by the legislature of 
the State, and is under the Presbyterian Church in the 
United States of America. 

It stands at the radiating point of seven railroads, in 
the midst of a dense and comparatively intelligent popu- 
lation, and occupies a site of seventy acres within the 
city limits. 

It is situated in the heart of the South Atlantic region, 
which contains the two Synods of Atlantic and Catawba, 
having 322 colored churches, 211 ministers, scores of 
young meti in preparation for the ministry, with a large 
number of schools and academies under their care. These 
schools and churches must be furnished with intelligent 
Christian teachers and preachers, who must be largely 
educated on the field, and in contact with the people 
among whom they are to labor. Such training is given 
here at less expense than it could be elsewhere; the stu- 
dent has the best opportunity for a Christian education 
together with the refining influences of a Chr : stian home; 
and he is kept at the same time in contact and sympathy 
with the people.

SYSTEMATIC THEOLOGY— DR. PARTEE 

In this department, the purpose is to have each student 
read during his course, some standard work on System- 
atic Theology, and in addition to this read some authority 
on Theism. 

This course of reading will be made the subject of the 
most thorough examination and free discussion, and will 
be supplemented by every available means which is likely 
to encourage and stimulate the student in his search of 
truth, and in preparation for its defense. 

Systematic Theology is begun in the second semester 
of the Junior year and is completed in the Senior year. 
The doctrines of Theology are presented didactically, his- 
torically and problematically. The order of topics pur- 
sued is : The nature, forms and sources of Theology ; the 
being of God, His nature and attributes; Trinity; the 
Divinity of Christ ; the holy nature, necessity, perfection 
and extent of the atonement ; His kingdom ; His humilia- 
tion and exaltation; vocation; regeneration; faith; justi- 
fication ; sanctification ; the law of God ; eschatology, the ; 
sacraments. 

HOMILETICS— DR. JONES 

The work of this department is carried on throughout 
the seminary course. In the Junior and Middle years, a 
text-book on the "Preparation and Delivery of Sermons" 
is read. This is supplemented by exercise in the analysis 
of sermons, and preaching before the professors and 
students of the University weekly. 

In the Middle and Senior classes much attention is 
given to the preparation and criticism of sermon plans 
and extempore preaching. 

CHRISTIAN EVIDENCES— DR. PARTEE 

By means of text-books and discussions, the student 
is aided in verifying the Biblical proofs of Doctrine and 
Christian truth as represented in the symbols of the 
Church, and he is thus trained to express with facility and 
clearness the revealed will of God.

BIDDLE UNIVERSITY 
CHARLOTTE, N. C. 



PASTORAL THEOLOGY— DR. PARTEE 

The treatment of this subject is confined to the third 
year of the course. It is designed that each student shall 
become thoroughly acquainted with the best method of 
applying the message of salvation to the hearts and lives 
of men. Lectures are given, accompanied by the use of 
text-books. 

The course includes the importance of ministerial piety, 
proper habits of study, skill and ability in the various 
branches of our church work, the pastor's duty and rela- 
tion to the various courts of the church, and the various 
private and public duties pertaining to his office. 

CHURCH GOVERNMENT— DR. PARTEE 

Four lectures on the general subject are given to the 
Junior Class. 

In the Middle Year the Form of Government with proof 
text is taken up and pursued through one semester and a 
minute comparison with other forms of Church polity is 
made. 

In the Middle and Senior Years, the Book of Discipline 
is used as a text-book, accompanied by lectures. 

BIBLICAL HISTORY— DR. PARTEE 

Since sacred history is of vital importance as a part of 
a thorough theological education, the subject is pursued 
through the entire three years' course. 

Biblical History is studied by the Junior Class, with the 
English version of the Old Testament as a text-book and 
Smith's Old Testament History as a guide, and is taught 
by lectures and constant references to the typical and 
preparatory nature of the Old Testament. The connection 
between sacred and profane history is pointed out, and 
attention given to Archeology, Geography, and Chro- 
nology. 

ECCLESIASTICAL HISTORY— DR, JONES 

This subject is taken up by the Middle Class, and 
taught by lectures, with text-books covering the period 
from Apostolic times to the Reformation — sixteenth cen- 
tury. 

Page Fifteen] 



BIDDLE UNIVERSITY 
CHARLOTTE, N. C. 



The Senior Class continues the subject from the Refor- 
mation to the present time, devoting the second term to 
the history of the Presbyterian Church of the U. S. A. 

During each year a carefully prepared thesis having 
for its subject some leading personage, epoch, or phase, 
etc., from sacred history, is required from each student. 

ENGLISH BIBLE— DR. SHUTE 

One may know a great deal about the Bible, and yet 
be unfamiliar with the Book itself. 

The design of this course is to secure to the students 
intimate first-hand knowledge of the Scriptures. 

To this end the Bible itself is the text-book. 

CHRISTIAN SOCIOLOGY— DR. McCROREY 

One hour per week throughout the Senior Year is de- 
voted to the study of Church and Social questions. 

Instruction is given partly by the use of text books and 
partly by lectures; the aim being to treat the subject in a 
practical manner. 

FORWARD MISSION STUDY— DR. SHUTE 

This study is pursued once a week throughout the 
course; and its purpose is that the students may gain a 
knowledge of the countries where missions are to be 
established and maintained, and of the people of those 
countries, their forms of government, racial peculiarities, 
religious beliefs and degree of intelligence ; also their en- 
vironments, difficulties, discouragements and needs. 

Such knowledge broadens the vision, increases giving, 
and leads to a higher life of service. 

SUqutrpmrnts fur JJrnmDttan nni (grabtrattrm 

A grade of sixty-five per cent is required in a single 
study for each Semester, and a general yearly average of 
seventy-five per cent is required for promotion and for 
graduation. Each student attaining an average of ninety 
per cent, for the entire regular course, is granted the

Period of Study — The regular course of study, as in 
other seminaries of the Presbyterian Church, covers a 
period of three years. 

Practical Work — The practical work of the ministry is 
joined with the work of preparation, as the theological 
students have opportunities of laboring as supplies in the 
neighboring churches during vacation and in term time. 

With the facilities at hand, special and successful ef- 
forts are made to aid students in obtaining vacation em- 
ployment along the line of their future work as teachers 
and preachers among the people. 

Rules and Regulations — Except in a few particulars, 
the students of the School of Theology are not subject to 
rules and regulations which govern those of the other 
schools of the University. 

Rooms — The rooms in McNamee Hall are reserved for 
candidates for the ministry. Each of the rooms is fur- 
nished with a bedstead, mattress, pillows, bureau, wash- 
stand, chairs, looking glass, etc., and is heated by steam. 

Expenses — There is no charge for tuition or room rent. 

There is a charge of ten dollars per month for board, 
in connection with the boarding department, where all 
the students living on the grounds are required to board ; 
the theological students, however, are provided with sep- 
arate dining-room. The fee of ten dollars per month 
covers also expenses of fuel, light, and washing of towels 
and bed-clothing. 

Examinations — The semi-annual examination will be 
conducted the last week in January and the last week in 
May. The examinations will be oral and written. Each 
student is required to take these examinations, and if by 
sickness or aibsence one fails to take them, he must submit 
to an examination with a corresponding class in a subse- 
quent year.

Freshman Class — Fifteen units of secondary work are 
required for entrance, without condition, into the Fresh- 
man class. Students presenting thirteen units will be 
entered conditionally, with the understanding that the 
two units lacking will be made up by the end of the Sopho- 
more year. 

A unit in any subject signifies four sixty minute recita- 
tions per week for a period of thirty-six weeks and repre- 
sents a year's study, constituting approximately a quarter 
of a full year's work in a secondary school. 

This statement is designed to afford a standard of 
measurement for the work done in secondary schools. It 
takes the four year high school course as a basis, and as- 
sumes that the length of the school year is from thirty-six 
to forty weeks, that a period is from forty to sixty min- 
utes in length, and that the study is pursued for four or 
five periods a week; but under ordinary circumstances, a 
satisfactory year's work in any subject cannot be accom- 
plished in less than one hundred and twenty sixty-minute 
periods or their equivalent. Schools organized for any 
other than a four year basis can, nevertheless estimate 
their work in terms of this unit. 

Of the fifteen units necessary for entrance twelve are 
required as follows : 

English 3 Plane Geometry 1 

Latin 2% History 1 

Greek \ x k Physics Vz 

Elementary Algebra IV2 Physiology V2 

Physiography V2 

The other three units may be selected from the fol- 
lowing group, with the values attached : 

Solid Geometry V 2 Chemistry V2 

Advanced Algebra V2 German 1 

Trigonometry V2 French 1 

Botany V2 Bible 1 

Graduates of the High School of Biddle University, and 
affiliated schools having the standard High School course 
of study or its equivalent, are admitted to the Freshman 
class on certificate.

BIDDLE UNIVERSITY 
CHARLOTTE, N. C. 



Other students making application for admission to the 
Freshman class will be required to conform strictly to the 
entrance requirements and will be admitted to the class 
by sustaining their examinations in the subjects men- 
tioned in the requirements. 

Advanced Standing — All candidates seeking admission 
to advanced standing should be prepared for thorough 
tests in the subjects taught in the class next below the one 
they may desire to enter. 

Special Students — Mature persons who desire to pursue 
some special subjects, and who have had requisite prelimi- 
nary training are allowed to enter the various courses of 
study in Biddle University without becoming candidates 
for degrees. 

Such students are subject to the same regulations re- 
garding attendance and examinations as candidates for 
degrees. 

(Eouraw of 3lnatruHt0tt 

Biddle University offers two courses of study in the 
School of Arts and Sciences — the Classical, and the Scien- 
tific. In the Scientific course German is substituted for 
Latin or Greek. Students completing the Classical Course 
satisfactorily receive the degree of Bachelor of Arts 
(A. B.) ; those completing the Scientific Course, that of 
Bachelor of Science (B. S.)

year and covers the work usually found in a good text- 
book, distinguishing, however, between the propositions 
that are strictly essential and those that are only supple- 
mentary in character. The mere memorizing of proofs 
is discouraged and exercises are assigned to train the stu- 
dent into the habit of independent thought and accurate 
reasoning. 

Trigonometry : Plane Trigonometry is studied during 
the Sophomore year. The course includes definitions and 
the relations of the six trigonometric functions as ratios, 
general formulas, solutions of right and oblique triangles, 
using both natural functions and logarithms, inverse 
functions, radiangraphs of various functions, and the 
theory of trigonometric equations.

Discussions upon the heritage of Rome, migration of 
the races, matters of first-rate importance; as Feudalism, 
the Mediaeval Church, the Renaissance are thoroughly re- 
viewed, and other germinal forces and incidents which 
explain the development of Modern Europe, and guide in 
forming clear comprehension of the present European 
states and policies. Important questions arising in the 
course of the recitations from the text-book are always 
supplemented by a full and free discussion. 

Senior Year: English History. The purpose of this 
course is to study the different phases and trace the varied 
influences which brought about the growth of English 
institutions and English civilization, struggle for consti- 
tutional government against despotism, the extension of 
the Empire, the diffusion, development and advances 
along all lines, symbolic of this people. 

The French Revolution. A complete survey is made of 
the things and occurrences incident to this terrible epi- 
sode in French History, in removing the many absurd and 
vexatious laws and customs with abuses, tiring the whole 
nation, from the king to the peasant, and the substitu- 
tion of the modern and more rational order for the long 
standing disorder. 

American History : A thorough study of the facts and 
forces underlying American institutions, and which have 
formed the present day conception of our national devel- 
opment. 

Special emphasis is placed upon the perusal of docu- 
ments of authoritative source, such as state papers, pri- 
vate journals and letters, extracts from speeches and 
writings of public men, and newspaper narrative and 
comments. 

The political, social, economic and sectional issues are 
considered. The United States Constitution, with amend- 
ments and various Reconstruction acts of Congress are 
critically studied for the information given concerning 
the re-adjusted rights of an emancipated and enfran- 
chised race.

PROF. T. H. McNEIL 
Superintendent 

All students in the High School are required to take 
some trade and report twice a week for work in the In- 
dustrial School. College students may also take trades. 

All students in the High School are required to make 
a grade in their industrial work. 

First and Second Year students will rotate from shop 
to shop by semesters. Third and Fourth Year Students 
will not be allowed to rotate. 

Students spending two years at some one trade will be 
given a certificate of proficiency upon the recommenda- 
tion of his teacher. 

At present several trades are being taught: Carpen- 
try, Printing, Bricklaying, Plastering, Tailoring, Black- 
smithing, Broom-making and Mattress-making. 

CARPENTRY AND MECHANICAL DRAWING 
Professor T. H. McNeil 

Carpentry is taught in a room which is provided with 
twelve cabinet benches, each of which is fitted up with a 
set of carpenter's tools. 

Students are taught the use and care of these tools, the 
principles of wood-working — from drawing and models — 
and have also such practical instruction as can be had 
from improvements and repairs of the building and fur- 
niture of the University. 

Besides doing the necessary work of the school, a 
limited amount of work is done for outside parties. 
Three professors' houses have been built by the students, 
also a boiler house, and the new Industrial Building. 

First and Second Year students will do elementary 
sloyd work. Only simple tools will be used. The models 
to be made will consist of small box carts, toy furniture, 
match boxes and striker combined, whiskbroom holders, 
etc.

the names and uses of tools and materials, the lay of type 
cases, the names and styles of type, and type composi- 
tion. 

In the third and fourth years instruction is given in 
the setting of jobs, the running of presses, the making 
of forms, and proof reading. 

In this office the "Afrieo-American Presbyterian" and 
the "Bid-die Outlook" are set up and printed, and job 
work is done, thus giving the students actual printing 
office instruction and practice, both in type setting and 
press work. The office is equipped for doing excellent 
work, and the instruction is thorough and practical.

Athletic sports are permitted and encouraged within I 
certain prescribed limtis, chiefly for the following rea- J 
sons : 1st, They provide wholesome recreation ; 2nd, I 
They give healthful exercise in the open air. Growing I 
youths naturally seek recreation of some kind. This i 
recreation should be something radically different from | 
their sedentary habits of study, and should contribute I 
directly to their physical well-being. The University] 
owns no gymnasium, so instead, a variety of games have] 
been introduced with the end in view that all of the I 
students may participate in some form of systematic I 
exercise. The faculty maintains supervision over the 
athletics in order that it may be assured that the various 
sports are conducted on a high and clean basis, and that 
they are not indulged in to the extent that studies or j 
duties are neglected. 

The Athletic Association, under the direction of 
which the games of baseball, football, basketball, and 
tennis are played, is a member of the North Carolina 
Inter-Collegiate Athletic Association, an organization 
that has done much to establish and maintain a high 
standard in college athletics. Any student may become a 
member of the Biddle University Athletic Association by 
paying the annual fee of fifty cents.

There are four flourishing literary societies — the Mat- 
toon, the Clarisophic, the Johnson, and the Douglass. The 
exercises consist of composition, discussion and debate. 
These societies also have school courts connected with 
them, are governed by laws enacted by their members, 
and are presided over by officers elected from the mem- 
bers. Every student is required to become a member 
of one of these societies, and to attend upon the exer- 
cises. The whole is under the supervision of the Faculty. 

There are also three reading circles — the Non Forma, 
the Literary Research, and the Olympia. These circles 
aim to keep pace with current events and opinions, to 
stimulate and develop literary taste and refinement, and 
to familiarize the members with the works of standard 
authors. 

CARNEGIE LIBRARY 

There are about ten thousand volumes now on the 
shelves of the library, and this number is being raoidly 
increased by purchase and by the gift of generous friends. 

In the spacious reading room are found a set of the 
New International Encyclopedia and Webster's New In- 
ternational Dictionary. Here also is a large number of 
newspapers, secular and religious, and many of the best 
magazines in the country. 

Utmost care was exercised in the selection, arrange- 
ment, and classification of the books of the library, which 
is operated according to the latest method of library 
management. 

The library is open dailv except Sunday, and students
